Many of us are in the habit of following environmental and sustainable practices at home by wisely recycling and reusing a broad variety of items.

 It’s time to bring those same wise practices to work at your library. 

In this interactive and enlightening webinar from PCI, we will explore the current state of the art of being green at work, including:

  •  Green buildings
  • Green programs and services
  • Best Green practices

Resource lists will be provided and there will be time to discuss and share your own green practices through an interactive chat.

With the new-year looming, going green would be a great resolution for you, your staff and patrons.
