This study aimed to determine eco-friendly factors on the aspects of library service, materials provided or handled by the library, and programs including educational programs. Furthermore, it was setup to perform a trial evaluation for the eco-friendliness of the library based on the determined evaluation standards by this study. Results are as follows; First, regarding the question of 'Do employees of the library think that establishment of green libraries is necessary?', the employees of the libraries responded yes by 65.52%, but only 4.6% responded that it would not be necessary. Second, in analyzing the most important evaluation areas of green libraries according to the opinions of the libraries' employees, they were ranked in order: the indoor environment, energy and prevention of environmental pollution, and material and resource areas. Third, 11 areas were determined to evaluate the level of greening in the libraries; the highest averages were scored 510 for the area of energy and prevention of environmental pollution, 415 for the area of library resource, and 320 for the area of indoor environment. Last, the libraries were graded based on actual data according to the results to measure the level of greening, two libraries were graded as Diamond, the highest grade, accounting for 15.39% of all libraries; Gold and Silver grades accounted for another 15.39%, together five Certified graded libraries accounted for 38.46%, which was the highest rate among the libraries. Any library scoring less than 20% when compared to the full score was graded as Non-certified, and one library, which scored 15.06% fell into this category. The results of this study set up to serve as basic data for the direction of development for green libraries in our country, as well as reference for the employees of libraries in constructing or remodeling library buildings, establishing service infrastructure, providing information service, and planning library duties in an eco-friendly way.
Gooran orimi, K.; Ghiasi, M.; Tahmasebi Limooni, S. (2021). Evaluation of Iranian Digital Library websites based on green web components. Librarianship and Information Organization Studies, 31(4), 24-42. DOI: 10.30484/nastinfo.2020.2535.1960
Purpose: Determining strong and weak points of Iranian digital library websites based on the components of the green web. Methodology: All 59 active digital library websites in Iran were surveyed using a checklist consisting of three phases. Validity of the checklist was confirmed by web design and information science experts. Its reliability was confirmed based on Cronbach's alpha test (0.861). Website evaluation was performed using 5 online tools. Data analysis was performed using descriptive and inferential statistics (binomial and chi-square tests). Findings: There was a statically significant difference among websites in regard to the Create (P = 0.005) and User (P = 0.030) phases. In the Analysis phase, planning checking the sub-index was not possible. Overall, we found significant difference (p= 0.001) among websites in the three main phases of green web, so that 44.1% were at good level and 39.1% were at moderate levels. Conclusion: The state of green web indexes in Iranian digital library websites is good. However, the processes of Planning in the Analysis phase and Graphical user interface in the User phase require further attention by webmasters and designers.

It is an open access and free of charge service for schoolers that brings the change to learning experience. Poster represents benefits (advantages) that Makerspace brings to National Library, Public libraries and most importantly to the users. The aim of the poster is to present Makerspace as a bridge that connects Traditional Library and emerging technologies such as 3D printing, Coding, sustainable design, Virtual Reality and etc. Makerspace is a successful service from National Library of Lithuania that proved to be a good way to attract new users and strengthen library‘s community. In almost 3 years‘ time 10000 users have used our services and discovered library in a new and exiting way. IFLA WLIC 2019 main topic “Dialogue for change“ was exactly what we wanted to communicate through bringing our expertise to the conference. Our successful service is a great way to encourage other libraries to take on courageous initiatives, unconventional solutions and open the libraries‘ door to meet technological changes that are forming new way of learning, communicating, sharing and creating.

This chapter traces some of the origins, developments and newer tendencies in reuse architecture from the perspective of the architect. Furthermore, it examines possible sustainability issues and qualities, beyond the obvious recycling aspect, inherently rooted in the practice of reuse architecture. The chapter also provides insight into some of the practical aspects of conversion and adaptive reuse from the planning stage at the drawing board to the reality of the building site, while maintaining a theoretical underpinning of this praxis, which the author considers to be a genre of its own. Accompanying the theoretical and practical overview, the chapter casts a critical eye over the relationship of formalised historic preservation methods and traditions in relation to the growth and popu-larity of reuse architecture and questions its future trajectory.
International Federation of Library Associations_and_Institutions (IFLA) (2018). Exemplares, educadores, facilitadores: Bibliotecas e sustentabilidade: Como as bibliotecas contribuem para a sustentabilidade.
As bibliotecas são, sem dúvida, um dos primeiros exemplos de economia compartilhada. Ao comprar coletivamente livros (seja através de verbas próprias no caso de bibliotecas privadas, ou de fundos públicos no caso de bibliotecas públicas), eles provaram ser uma ótima maneira de maximizar o acesso e ao mesmo tempo, reduzir o consumo.
International Federation of Library Associations_and_Institutions (IFLA) (2018). Exemplars, educators, enablers: Libraries and sustainability: How libraries contribute to sustainability.
As institutions with a societal mission, it is natural for libraries to seek to address the major societal challenges of today - and there are fewer greater than sustainability. With agreement of the United Nations' 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development three years ago, this has been recognised as major political priority, and governments have committed to act.

Harrington, Eileen G. (2014). Exploring environmental science with children and teens. Chicago: ALA ed., an imprint of the Amercian Library Association. ISBN: 9780838911983
Despite the abundance of resources on the subject, in the classroom science often takes a back seat to the study of math and English. That gives public and school libraries as well as museums the opportunity to jump in as venues for informal education, sharing the wonders of science with children and their caregivers. In this intriguing book Harrington focuses on environmental science, offering a selection of unique programming ideas that not only entertain but also arm children and teens with information about environmental issues. There's no need to have a particular background in science to use this all-in-one resource, which includes - Background information on the national state of science education, and how environmental programming can foster science literacy - Ways to introduce environmental science themes into existing library programs via textquotedblLittle Learners Labstextquotedbl for toddlers, science storytimes for young children, and book clubs for tweens and teens - Lists of age-appropriate titles to share with any group - Strategies for implementation to ensure success. This book not only demonstrates the need for environmental programming but also gives those who work with children and teens the ideas and confidence they need to move forward.

Nachdem die auszubildenden FaMIs schon 2020 der Absage der Frankfurter Buchmesse geschuldet keinen Messestand organisieren konnten, waren sie 2021 zunächst hoffnungsfroh, gestalteten wie in den Vorjahren eine FaMI-Zeitung mit einer kurzen Berufsbeschreibung, Spezifika der einzelnen Fachrichtungen eingeschlossen, Rätseln und kreativen Bastelanleitungen, twitterten, waren auf Instagram zu finden, stellten kleinere und größere Kunstwerke aus Papier und Büchern her, Buttons mit dem Logo und warben Preise für das Glücksrad ein. Das Projekt stand diesmal unter dem Motto "FaMIs for future", angelehnt (auch farblich) an die Aktion "Libraries for future" und ging folgerichtig auch auf Nachhaltigkeit von und in Bibliotheken ein, z.B. durch den Effekt einer geteilten Nutzung der bereitgestellten Medien.
Hauke, Petra; Werner, Klaus Ulrich (2014). Farbe bekennen - Grüne Bibliotheken auf die Tagesordnung! Vortrag auf dem 103. Deutschen Bibliothekartag, Bremen, 5. Juni 2014.
Was in vielen Ländern bereits im Alltag der Bibliotheken verankert ist, beginnt in Deutschland erst sehr zaghaft: Das Verantwortungsbewusstsein von Bibliotheken für die ökologische Bildung der Gesellschaft und die Konsequenzen daraus für die Bibliothekspraxis. Es ist höchste Zeit, in der deutschen Bibliothekslandschaft publik zu machen, was eine glqqGrüne Bibliothekgrqq sein kann -- bezogen auf das Gebäude, die Ausstattung, das Management, die Services für die Nutzer. Anhand einer Checkliste wird gezeigt, wie Bibliotheken mit einem glqqgrünengrqq Konzept nicht nur selbst etwas für die ökologische Nachhaltigkeit tun können, sondern auch wie sie als Multiplikatoren in den Kommunen, Hochschulen und bei anderen Trägern Einfluss auf das ökologische Verhalten nehmen und damit einen wichtigen Beitrag für unsere Gesellschaft leisten. Summary: Bringing environmental awareness to libraries does not necessarily imply huge financial efforts or a big budget. Ecological sustainability is an undervalued aspect of the marketing strategy for libraries which has more impact on clients and on stakeholders than one would expect. Small steps in going green can make a big impact for the library's image. Little financial input can produce an important marketing outcome. Activities in this field can be developed in cooperation with unpaid partners like non-governmental organisations (NGOs), Friends of the Library groups, library suppliers and, last but not least, the library users. A checklist on how to go green gives an overview of important aspects in planning, construction, and library operations in order to introduce the first grqqgreen footsteps''.

The word ``GREEN'' has a different power for sustainable development i.e. green vegetables for health, green fodder for cattle, and green environment for peace of mind. As green feeds are useful for better health, green environments are also helpful for peace mind. A Green reading environment availed with natural air, natural light may be attracting the readers to Read, Relax and Refresh. Lack of green forest is cause of global warming and climate change etc, so everyone needs everything to be Green to save the earth. Day-to-day People's interests are growing for green movement in different fields. In the field of Library and Information Science, a new concept named Sustainable Library or Green Library having popularity among LIS Professionals. People need green food to feed as well as green Library to read. Green Library is not only a thought, but also a movement towards the sustainable development of libraries all over the world particularly in development countries. The green library movement involves librarians, library staff, library users, libraries that are dedicated to greening libraries and reducing the environmental degradation. ``Feed Green to Read Green'' is a sign of ``as people take care their body for a better health, they should take care their library's health (development). It calls for ``Go Green'' in daily foods as well as daily library activities.

From yogurt to sourdough, soy sauce, beer, wine, and kombucha, fermented food and drinks are all around us. Many people are tuning into the benefits of probiotics (found in fermented food) for the health of our gut flora and are seeking an inexpensive alternative to probiotic supplements. Then there are the foodies who love the rich, earthy flavors of ferments like sauerkraut---one of the most popular and easy-to-make fermented foods. With a few basic tools and ingredients, you can help program participants make their own jar of kraut to ferment at home. It's a satisfyingly hands-on process that older kids and adults alike will enjoy

Are you sure it's time to throw out those pants with a broken zipper or that bike with the squeaky pedals? Sustainable living involves making changes in your everyday life to ensure that you leave the planet a better place after you're gone. These changes can include recycling and reducing waste, of course, but also repairing rather than replacing. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and supply chain shortages, interest in sustainability and self-reliance topics has risen considerably among library patrons. Libraries of all types are enhancing programming by embracing these timely subjects and providing much sought-after instruction.
