The future of libraries depends on our ability to take an active, visible role in building sustainable and resilient communities. In April the Public Library Association (PLA) will offer a webinar exploring the importance of infusing the concept of sustainability into library programming. The webinar, titled Sustainable Thinking for the Future of Libraries, will be presented on Wednesday, April 12, from 1 to 2 p.m. Central Time. The webinar's presenter will be Rebekkah Smith Aldrich, MLS, LEED AP, CSBA. Aldrich currently serves as the coordinator for Library Sustainability at the Mid-Hudson Library System (New York), a founding member of the American Library Association's (ALA) Sustainability Roundtable, and the sustainability columnist for Library Journal.
The cost to attend is $28 for PLA personal members, $31.50 for ALA personal members, and $35 for non-members. Groups of any size may participate for only $129.
