The Task Force on the Environment (TFOE) was created in 1989 in the spirit of the 20th Anniversary of Earth Day (1990). TFOE is one of the issues-oriented task forces that comprise the Social Responsibilities Round Table (SRRT) of the American Library Association (ALA). TFOE includes librarians, publishers, vendors, and other interested parties from a wide variety of settings, from public libraries, school libraries, and college and university libraries, to government agencies, public interest groups, publishers, vendors and other information providers.
TFOE recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. A brief history of TFOE by Fred Stoss, " How and Why We Got Here Today: A History of the ALA Task Force on the Environment" appeared in the September 2009 SRRT Newsletter.
