You can empower library patrons to take collective action on the issue of food waste by hosting a weekly frozen food waste drop- off program at your library. This program is great for those not ready---or able---to compost at home. The whole family can get involved, from collecting and freezing their food waste at home, to dropping off the frozen scraps in collection bins set up just outside the library. Food waste collection programs divert organic waste from the landfill, reducing methane emissions. If you don't have a compost system on-site, you can partner with a local community garden or farm to turn food scraps into nutrient-rich compost, turning trash into treasure and keeping local resources in the local community.

Imagine having your own herd of miniature pygmy goats that excitedly gallop across the yard to greet you every day, or a flock of chickens that will follow along in step as you walk, chirping all the while, or a sheep that will baa ``hello'' to you each time you pass by. Imagine also carrying a basket filled to the brim with vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers that you've harvested from your own gardens. This is what it's like to live on a hobby farm.
Bronkar, Cherie (2017). How to start a library makerspace. In Kroski, Ellyssa (Hrsg.), The makerspace librarian's sourcebook (S. 3-18). ALA Editions
You may have heard the term ``makerspace'' and wondered what it meant. Makerspaces are, simply put, places where people gather to make things. Although that may sound like a simplistic definition, the things that can be created in a makerspace vary a great deal. Makerspaces can be high tech, low tech, and everything in between. A makerspace's offerings revolve around the needs of the community it serves, but the one thing all have in common is that they bring people together to share ideas. Typically, the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about mak- erspaces is 3D printing, but when it comes to what’s going on in makerspaces around the world, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Makers create things, ideas, and concepts. Makers work in metal, wood, plastic, fabric, paper, and digital forms. From robotics to crocheting, there are no limits to your makerspace. Let your imagination run wild. In this chapter, we’ll provide the information and ideas to get your maker-spaces up and running based on your unique populations and budgets. You’ll find a myriad of ways to create your makerspace. You’ll also discover ways to ensure your makerspace is fun and functional.

Many large academic libraries are split up into different programs or departments. These individual departments are responsible for providing office supplies for their staff and service desks. These supplies can include low-budget items like staplers and pens, as well as bigger pieces like whiteboards and desk organizers. After the supplies are ordered and used, there can be a surplus for a variety of reasons. Someone may have retired and their office needs to be cleaned out. Sometimes the supplies come in bundles, and only a portion are needed for that specific unit. Or a new process may have been developed and that specific item isn’t needed anymore. At the UC San Diego Library, whenever there are extra supplies, the administrative assistants for that department forward them to the Campus Facilities Management’s Surplus Sales unit.

Wagner, Janet (2022). Idea-Café events organized by the German Green Library Network
The German Green Library Network stands for networking, information and exchange between libraries and also with other cultural and educational institutions. For regular exchange, people met before 2020 in the framework of a “Stammtisch” (regulars’ table) in the Berlin area. With the onset of the Corona pandemic, we received enquiries as to whether the network could also organise regular, virtual exchange, regardless of where one lives. This can be easily implemented with online meetings – the format “Ideas Café Green Library” was born.

Vasishta, Seema; Navjyoti; Dhanda, Maninder Kaur (2019). Increasing ``Green Quotient'' in Libraries: A Case Study of Punjab Engineering College (Deemed to be University), Chandigarh, India. International Journal of Information Dissemination and Technology, 9(4), 159-162. DOI: 10.5958/2249-5576.2019.00032.3
A significant movement of maximizing the green quotient is gaining momentum all over the world, with libraries being no exception. Libraries are being customised to `Green Libraries' so as to sustain the natural resources, create environment consciousness and protect the environment. In the present scenario, to develop a successful library, a librarian must establish such services which are not only useful for the users but also work for increasing the green quotient, leading to developing sustainable communities. Green libraries are the need of the hour to save the Mother Earth. The primary objective of this research paper is to analyse the importance of adopting `Going Green' practices and how green and sustainable practices have been implemented in Punjab Engineering College (Deemed to be University), Chandigarh. Many new technologies and practices are being implemented by the library professionals in the library understudy to minimize the negative impact of carbon footprints on the environment. This paper also gives an overview of some green activities that could be followed in developing countries such as India, which would help in sustaining eco-friendly movement.

In Hauke, Petra; Charney, Madeleine; Sahavirta, Harri (Hrsg.), Going green: implementing sustainable strategies in libraries around the world (S. 197-209). De Gruyter Saur. DOI: 10.1515/9783110608878-019
The major role of most libraries is to collect, process, store, retrieve and disseminate information. However, this routine demotivates many librarians who have the potential and enthusiasm to make an impact on national development. Climate change is one of the most challenging global occurrences. It greatly affects many developmental activities such as agriculture, on which over 80% of Uganda’s population thrives. The aim of this paper is to assess and recommend innovative ways through which librarians can practically participate in the mitigation of climate change effects in the country in addition to information dissemination. The study used a cross-sectional survey of librarians in Uganda and realised a response rate of 95.5%, with most respondents from academic institutions and their primary role mainly (83.7%) as librarians. It was established that the majority (55.8%) was aware of the 2030 United Nations (UN) Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Also observed was that air pollution, toxic pollutants and deforestation are the key causes of environmental degradation in Uganda. Librarians should be repositioned to promote products and services which assist in reducing waste as well as promoting awareness campaigns for waste reduction and education. This initiative, however, is expected to be affected by challenges such as poverty and the subsistence needs of the communities as well as conflicting priorities of the people and government.
Spink, Amanda (1999). Information science in sustainable development and de-industrialization. Information Research, 5(1)
This working paper brings together concepts and ideas about the role of information in the future of humanity. Different views have emerged within the international debate on sustainable development - a global industrialization view centers on sustaining global industrialization and a new moral order that advocates societal downscaling and de-industrialization based on regional self-sufficiency to preserve humanity. This working paper briefly outlines these approaches to sustainable development and their relationship to information science research. Both views are distinguished by their approach to de-industrialization. Global industrialization includes pockets of de-industrialization of communities and regions, and societal down scaling includes a de-industrialization process to a sustainable community. De-industrialization is therefore a growing interdisciplinary area of research within sociology, urban planning and policy, and economics. However, information science research is becoming primarily concerned with the informational dimensions of the global industrialization - not de-industrialization. Despite the growing interdisciplinary literature on sustainable development and de-industrialization, the informational aspects of these important issues have yet to be fully explored.
