Sustainable Libraries Certification Program

Join us on Tuesday, September 28th at 2:00 pm for an introduction to the Sustainable Libraries Certification Program. This webinar will present an introduction to the Sustainable Libraries Certification program, an award-winning project developed to guide library leaders through a step-by-step process to embed sustainable thinking into every level of their organization. An overview of the 12 categories of action items that comprise this rigorous, reflective, and most importantly, entirely achievable certification process will show how this program is organized and how libraries of every size and scale can customize their own path to certification. Examples drawn from recent certification recipients will highlight the ways that the certification program has benefited library staff, strengthened relationships with other community organizations, and helped libraries be recognized for their role in helping their communities to thrive.

Presenter: Annemarie Gordon (she/her), Sustainability Coordinator for the Sustainable Libraries Initiative and the Suffolk Cooperative Library System, is a librarian and recent graduate of the University at Buffalo’s MILS program.
