Summary
"Developing the capacity of public libraries to endure in the face of our ever changing world is of primary concern to public library leaders. How do we connect with our communities, remain relevant, make good use of the funds invested in our organizations and care for the people, places and things that constitute our institutions? Public libraries are uniquely positioned educational institutions; we have the ability to teach not only through our collections and programs but our choices as leaders. Libraries that choose the path of greening a facility project are sending a message to their community : we care about the Earth, we care about our community, we care about our workers, we care about your tax dollars - we care about you"--
