Check out two great articles that came out in May, one written by Louise Schaper, the other a Q&A with her:
- in the Spring issue of Library by Design, “Let Green Creep“
- in the 5.15.10 issue of Library Journal, “Lead with Green“
Louise is the former (now retired) director of the Fayetteville Public Library (AK). She spearheaded one of the first LEED libraries in the country and in recognition of her achievements Fayetteville was named LJ Library of the year in 2005.
In the Let Green Creep article Louise speaks to the issue of greening operations, not just a facility. It is an important lesson to be “green all over,” to not let greening end once your building gets its certificate of occupancy but to really live green in a green building.
