I’m starting off the new year with a new look to SustainableLibraries.org and will endeavor to post more this year, something Beth Filar Williams noted I had slacked off on in 2011! While I justified my lack of postings to Beth (& myself) by thinking I was having more meaningful connections on the Sustainable Libraries Facebook page, really it was just easier! I’m investing some energy to streamline my ability to post on the fly (read: from my smartphone) so that I don’t allow my mind to go soft. There’s a lot of exciting stuff going on in libraries around the world and lots for us to learn from outside of “libraryland.”
I think 2012 is going to be a lot of fun! With presentations coming up at the Public Library Association (PLA) conference in March and at the American Library Association (ALA) conference in June I am looking forward to meeting so many of you that believe as I do, that libraries are here to stay and that we can help ensure our future by investing in sustainable buildings, operations and best of all – Sustainable Thinking.
Bring it on 2012!
