Greening the Library

Hi all,

As summer heats up, we're looking for ways to make the library more environmentally friendly, and would really like your input. Do you have any ideas for ways that we could conserve resources without diminishing the library experience? Some of the ideas we're considering include:
  • Not turning on all library IT equipment as standard
  • Asking you to turn off IT equipment when you've finished with it
  • Not turning on all the library lights on sunny days
  • Encouraging double-sided printing and photocopying - perhaps making it default?
Would these changes negatively affect your library experience? Do you have any other ideas? Let us know!
