Call for Proposals: Green Libraries and Librarians

CFP: Green Libraries and Librarians

Calling all Green Librarians!  We know you're out there. We've heard through the grapevine about some of the inspiring, entrepreneurial initiatives you've taken on:
• partnering with with local organic farmers to provide Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) to their communities
• pursuing related professional development opportunities, such as attending the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) conference or achieving LEED accreditation
• raising awareness about climate change by hosting an ongoing film and discussion series on that topic at your library
• advocating for LEED-certified libraries
Do you know a librarian that fits this description: "sustainability advocate, educator or entrepreneur"? In that case, please pass this note along.

Or, maybe that person is you? We want to hear your story! Our team is in the process of collecting stories about librarians who are sustainability advocates for an upcoming book. Please fill out this form to let us know how we can get in touch: https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dFhfMTJudW5kbUNpUkZnUnJhSTBOSFE6MQ#gid=0.

If you have questions, ask away! We're very excited about this project and look forward to hearing from you.
