Every Day is Earth Day in the Children's Library

Thursday, April 13, 2023

The annual observance of Earth Day approaches and in the Children's Library we've come to the bold decision to honor this event by ceasing publication of the paper brochures of our recommended reading lists that we have available for your browsing. We will continue to update our online versions of these lists (and believe us, they are in constant flux as we are continually revising them).

In printing these lists, we were going through a lot of paper and that's not good for our one world. So we've caught up to the current trend and created this QR code that will zap you to the online lists. Please keep in mind that they are slowly but surely being updated, and we greatly appreciate your patience with this huge endeavor.

We also thank you for understanding our planet-friendly move to eliminate the printed lists. We gotta save that paper for making more books, right? And if you're looking for some great books about saving the planet, why not check out our Go Green list, excerpted below!
