Tanasijevic, Suzana; Pesic, Ivana (2019). Changing yourself will change the World – Public Library in Jagodina by developing the library according to the users’ needs will become a part of global changes worldwide: Poster presented at IFLA WLIC 2019, Athens, Greece.
The poster shows how the Public Library in Jagodina with the implementation of three (still ongoing) digitally inclusive innovative services directly participates in the implementation of the UN AGENDA 2030 and achieves the following SDG’s: 4, 8, and 10. The Digital Citizen Project is supported by Google with the aim of transforming public libraries in the region into digital, innovative and educational centers that contribute to the development of a digitally advanced society. Using donated equipment of micro: bits, mi: node kits and a 3D printer Library organizes workshops educating children and youth to learn coding in order to prepare them successfully for today's demanding labor market needs. The project is particularly focused on children and young people who lack technological equipment. (Goal 4). The project, AgroLib-Ja started in 2010 with the support of the NGO EIFL-PLIP has revitalized four rural libraries and created a network of libraries that provide information and communication services especially for farmers. The aim of the project is to improve the lives of people in the villages and economically empower farmers through services: free internet access and ICT training, expert lectures in the field of agriculture, current literature and magazines, online marketplace for free advertising of farmers’ products. (Goals 4, 8). Within service Electricity letters – online literary magazine for children and youth, started in 2012, Library educates the youngest users through the new media. Library provides quick access to an e-publication for children and youth who do not have access to libraries. Library in this way reduces inequality between children in rural and urban areas with regard to equal access to information and education. (Goals 4, 10).

Sannwald, William W. (2016). Checklist of library building design considerations. Chicago: ALA Editions an imprint of the American Library Association. ISBN: 978-0-8389-1371-0
The needs and functions of library buildings have certainly changed over the last decade, but the necessity for planning intelligently and thoroughly hasn't. In fact, tighter budgets and the complex demands of both library users and staff call for careful preparation now more than ever. Whether you're building from the ground up or simply remodeling, the success of your project hinges on planning, coordination, and communication. This new update of Sannwald's classic guide will help you stay prepared and organized for every phase of your undertaking from conception through the dedication ceremony. Using a popular checklist format that ensures no detail is overlooked, this planner covers crucial considerations like Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) factors, structured to match the federal code; sustainable design features, including sensors that save energy and water; designing makerspaces, digital media labs, or leased library enterprises; disaster and recovery planning; creating quiet spaces; collaborative collections and materials-handling efficiency; and important virtual presence aspects to bear in mind during physical space decisions. Library managers, administrators, and facilities staff will find this book a matchless tool for any construction project regardless of size or complexity.

China weiß um die Bedeutung von ökologischer Nachhaltigkeit. Sie wird nicht nur häufig thematisiert, sondern auch in entsprechenden Projekten umgesetzt. Dutzende sogenannter Ecocities, sind bereits im Bau, mehr als 200 sind derzeit geplant -- ob sie allerdings die ökologischen Probleme wirklich lösen, ist umstritten. Auch Bibliotheken, als öffentliche und gesellschaftlich geschätzte Einrichtungen mit großem Energiebedarf begeben sich auf den glqqgrünen Weggrqq und werden so zu Multiplikatoren mit Vorbildfunktion.

ALA American Library Association (2021). Climate Change Library Lab
The Climate Change Library Lab was created to provide a rich source of information and advice specific to libraries, so that they might prepare for climate-related disasters or deal with post-disaster recovery within their communities.It is our hope that the resources available will be updated based on feedback and input from library staff and community members who have experienced climate-related disasters. This project is sponsored by the American Library Association's New Members Round Table.
Smith Aldrich, Rebekkah (2021). Climate action now | Sustainability. Library Journal, 146(Dec 14)
Climate scientists predict we will look back on the years 2020 and 2021 and think to ourselves, ``Those were the good old days.'' Record-setting heat, record amounts of scorched earth thanks to wildfires, record numbers of tropical storms, and a record number of freak natural disasters like derechos---that's what 2020 had to offer. And 2021 hasn't been much better. There is no more time to waste. Climate action is needed NOW. Libraries should be visible leaders and partner in this effort not only to protect the assets the public has entrusted them with but also to ensure library workers and community members have the support they need, through libraries, in the face of disruption.

Every spring, Joe Hammes looks forward to visiting his family's Wisconsin cottage. But one year, unprecedented high waters in the La Crosse area kept him away from it until late May. ``The Mississippi River is flooding,'' says Hammes, public relations and communications coordinator for the La Crosse Public Library (LCPL). ``People know this is going on.'' But what can they do about it at the local level?

"Climate change is the one thing we're all experiencing,'' says Alexandria (Va.) Library adult services librarian Megan Zimmerman. Institutions like hers see the firsthand effects of climate change right outside their doors. Twenty percent of the city is located on a floodplain, she said, and in recent years, storms have become more severe, causing homes and businesses to flood.

"Climate Change Conversations in Libraries: A Sabbatical Training Adventure" is chapter seven in the book Libraries Promoting Reflective Dialogue in a Time of Political Polarization (ACRL 2019). As part of a twenty-four-week sabbatical, Charney set out to train librarians in each New England state on a range of methods for facilitating climate change conversations. The ultimate goal of Facing the Future: Facilitating Climate Change Conversations in Your Library was to encourage—more honestly, to implore—librarians to see themselves as change makers and bridge builders. The training pressed participants to answer an essential and painful question. How will each of us—as individuals and community members—hold the global, life-threatening reality of climate change while leading our communities toward a kinder, saner, and safer world? Facing the Future, a four-hour training, offered participants an opportunity to look squarely in the face of climate change while practicing leadership exercises and mindfulness techniques.
Shute, Dacy (2022). Close-knit community: Program series showcases wool production and local heritage. American Libraries, 53(11/12), 16-17
Hickory (N.C.) Public Library (HPL) Community Engagement Librarian Dacy Shute was looking to host a program that would celebrate the city's agricultural legacy as well as create connections among its maker community. In March, she launched the Sheep to Sweater program series---five sessions that showed patrons, step-by-step, where wool comes from, how it's made, and how it can be used in crafting. Participants in these sessions got a hands-on experience. At the farm, patrons could touch raw wool fleece that had been sheared from the backs of Montadale and Romeldale sheep. In the drop-spindle class, participants immediately understood how time-consuming and difficult it is to create yarn without a spinning wheel or industrial machinery. Historically, if a person outgrew a sweater made from hand-spun yarn, the sweater would be frogged (unwound, ripped, or unknit) and reused for a new sweater. This knowledge added a component of appreciation---and sustainability---to the lessons.
Jagannathan, Vidhya (2022). Cobb County Public Library Garden. Georgia Library Quarterly, 59(4), Article 9
A community garden is a great way of expanding the library's service beyond its four walls and promoting patron collaboration. The library garden was imagined with the purpose of teaching, demonstrating, donating and involving families in growing food and experiencing the immense satisfaction derived from harvesting home-grown produce. Library gardens are a natural setting for promoting nutritional literacy and hands-on environmental learning. The North Cobb Regional Library Garden reflects Cobb County Public Library's mission of being a vital resource center providing services to enrich people's lives.

Der Wandel Öffentlicher Bibliotheken wird stark mit der Öffnung und Anbietung des physischen Raumes der Bibliothek und der Einbindung der Menschen darin verbunden. Damit rückt die Idee des Community Building als Arbeitsfeld für Öffentliche Bibliotheken stärker in den Fokus, womit mehr gemeint ist als die Umgestaltung von Bibliotheken zuglqqDritten Ortengrqq. Vielmehr können Bibliotheken durch aktive Kooperationen mit der Zivilgesellschaft kommunale Netzwerke bilden oder stärken und Menschen miteinander in Kontakt bringen. Bibliotheken, die dieses neue Arbeitsfeld aufgreifen, agieren damit automatisch im Bereich der sozialen Nachhaltigkeit und helfen dabei, die Agenda 2030 für nachhaltige Entwicklung der Vereinten Nationen zu erfüllen, die u. a. die Stärkung des gesellschaftlichen Zusammenhalts zum Ziel hat. Darüber hinaus können sie sogar eine aktivere Rolle in der Stadtentwicklung einnehmen, die sich immer stärker auf Nachhaltigkeit fokussiert.

"Sustainability is not about keeping the world the way it is today. Sustainability is about building a better world. It is based on the recognition that economy and environment are not a zero sum game and that people have the power to ensure the quality of life of their own community. It's time for librarians 'to make a better world through direct engagement with our communities.’ By achieving the competencies in community-based librarianship, this new generation of LIS graduates will be equipped to transform LIS into a community anchored librarianship and to establish a new community-centered perspective for the benefit of librarians’ education and professional development.”
Johnson, Catherine; Pinnick Andrejko, Maggie (2022). Composting at home. In Kroski, Ellyssa (Hrsg.), 25 ready-to-use sustainable living programs for libraries (S. 137-142). ALA Editions
Composting is a way to recycle organic matter, like food scraps and grass clippings, into a nutrient-rich fertilizer. The best part is that it's great for the environment too. A composting program is a great homesteading topic to offer because it is an accessible program for many patrons. Composting can be done in homes with big backyards, as well as school yards or college campuses.
The paper represents the third stage of the ``Ways of sustainability'', after reflections on buildings, specialized collections, training and educational initiatives. In this series of papers different themes are faced, all referable to libraries sustainability. This paper analyses the strategic role of communication, reporting Italian examples relating to public and academic libraries, guiding principles and actions that promote a more sustainable behavior of librarians and users in the library and in everyday life and ensure that libraries become an example for citizens.
