Green's a go at the Library!

Posted: Monday, April 15, 2013, 8:49 am

Despite what TS Eliot had to say on the matter, at the Library, April is the greenest month.

The library's calendar is blossoming with fun and educational programs for all ages this month. Adults can learn how insects are vital to a healthy environment with the April 18 installment in our monthly series, Second Nature. On April 20, kids can drop in to celebrate Earth Day at GROW: Exploring Nature through Art.

Conserve resources— and save money on your electric bill— by borrowing an Energy Check Toolkit.

Thanks to our Green living guide, you can go green year-round. Books and DVDs for kids and teens show the fun side of a green life. Adults can explore books on dirt, worms, bugs and plants to learn ways to green their backyards and cultivate their green thumbs.

Students and researchers interested in environmental issues can check out GreenFILE to locate articles and reports on subjects such as climate change, renewable energy, recycling and green building.

The Library also leads by example. Along with our community partners, Worthington Libraries supports the Central Ohio Green Pact. We promote and further green initiatives in Worthington with green practices, including use of energy efficient lighting and organic products as well as extensive recycling of books, paper, printer cartridges and more.
