NCompass Live: Small Libraries Will Save the World! Implementing Sustainability at the Library

It’s true! Small Libraries Will Save the World! Learn how on this weeks’ NCompass Live webinar, ‘Implementing Sustainability at the Library’ on Wednesday, August 4 at 10am CT. Concerned about climate change but not sure what you can do? Help your library “go green” by leveraging the secret super power of small, rural and under-resourced libraries everywhere: the make-do mindset! Forget LEED building certifications, we’ll show you how your library can adopt systems that align your shoestring budget with tips on everything from sustainable programming practices, operational approaches, environmental partnerships, as well as easy (and cost-saving!) eco-friendly swaps based on the experience of one library’s mission to be a community leader in reducing its environmental impact. Presenter: April Griffith, Library Director, Eureka Springs (AR) Carnegie Library. Upcoming NCompass Live shows:
