We are thinking a lot about COVID-19 and how it has impacted our lives, our work and our environment. We think about the future, and what awaits with COVID- 19 and the efforts of sustainability. Today, we know that libraries and all library workers are greatly affected and concerned by issues connected to sustainability. From environmental to social to financial sustainability, we need to re-center our focus on what changes we can make and how to share progress.
Groupe projet bibliothèque verte (2021). Guide de la bibliothèque verte.
Depuis cinq ans, la bibliothèque se positionne sur la question environnementale : grainothèque, fonds écologie et groupe projet bibliothèque verte ont vu le jour à la Canopée. Afin d'accentuer son identité, l'équipe s'engage désormais dans des pratiques professionnelles plus respectueuses de l'environnement. Ce guide est donc l'expression d'une volonté d'amélioration : il sépare explicitement les actions entreprises et celles à l'état de projet. Loin d'ériger la Canopée en exemple irréprochable, cet ouvrage vise à s'appuyer sur les défauts de notre organisation afin de réduire notre impact écologique sur le long terme.

Goodsett, Mandi (2020). Hosting a sustainability speaker series: Libraries should look to the experts in their communities. American Libraries, 51(April 24)
To mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day---and recognize the American Library Association adding sustainability as a core value---American Libraries returns with its ongoing sustainability series. In these posts, information professionals share their experiences with sustainability in libraries. Sustainability is an issue that should concern everyone. As information professionals, we can play a critical role in encouraging sustainable practices and solutions.

While there is a broad spectrum of ecological sophistication within libraries nationwide and some regions are at the forefront of sustainable of sustainable design and operations, others are just beginning or have yet to integrate materials recycling into their daily practice. A few jurisdictions are mandating LEED certified buildings and carbon-neutral practices, while others do not yet have these concepts on their radars.

"Building Partnerships for Learning" formed the theme for the 1999 New York Library Association Annual Conference. When contemplating this theme the 30th Anniversary of Earth Day (April 22, 1970) came to mind as a pivotal event that contributed greatly to building environmental partnerships that have shaped perceptions about our environment for three decades. The "battle cry" of the first Earth Day, "Think Globally. Act Locally!" was the setting for a comprehensive examination of several major environmental issues and how libraries play major roles by supporting our learning about complex and controversial environmental topics. "How Green Is My Library?" the title of this session, reflects a question that addresses the roles libraries play related to environmental issues and concerns.

This was the topic of the fourth Madurodam Conference which took place in The Hague on Thursday 23 April 2009. The conference organised by the Vereniging van openbare bibliotheken - VOB (Association of Dutch Public Libraries) brought together 50 participants from Western Europe, with the exception of one American, one Canadian and one South African. The study day was divided into two time slots: the morning was devoted to international experiences, in English. The afternoon was reserved for Dutch experiences, presented by Dutch speakers. This article provides an overview of the morning presentations.
Cardoso, Nathalice Bezerra (2020). How is your library contributing to sustainable development?
Nathalice Cardoso is a Brazilian librarian and researcher with 12 years of work experience. She was a German Chancellor Fellow of Alexander von Humboldt Foundation (2019-2020) and visiting researcher at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg). Since 2014 she is a member of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro State's Research Group ``Public Libraries in Brazil: Reflection and Practice'' This calculator is one of the results of her research ``Social Responsibility of Library Science in Transforming Society to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)''. The purpose of this calculator is to provide insights into the topic to encourage more librarians to think about actions and implement them in libraries. Public Libraries are relevant cultural institutions and educational spaces with the mandate of free access to information, which play an important role in fulfilling the Agenda's 2030 goals for Sustainable Development. Societies in which it is possible for everyone to obtain the information they need at the right time are better placed to combat poverty and inequality, improve the health of their population, support culture, research and innovation. Not only the public access to information is important but also to use the library as a meeting space for education, workshops, lectures, expositions, courses, etc.
Lenstra, Noah (2020). How public libraries are helping us find nature during the crisis
Within days of closing their facilities to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the 17,452 public libraries in communities across the United States started reminding patrons how to utilize their outdoor spaces and services, and their electronic resources, to stay connected to nature. As ubiquitous community institutions full of staff well-versed on the latest and greatest technologies, public libraries have been ideally situated to continue encouraging children and families to get outside and stay active during these trying times.

The outcomes and objectives of repair events are innumerable. These intergenerational programs bring people of all backgrounds together to share stories and learn valuable skills. They divert thousands of items from landfills and reduce the need for more manufactured goods. Philosophically, repair events present an alternative paradigm to linear-degenerative economic systems that have no actionable plan for consumer waste.
Hauke, Petra (2015). How to become / How to identify a Green Library? Standards for certification: Paper presented at: IFLA WLIC 2015, Cape Town, South Africa.
Over the last decades there are libraries all over the world following the “green way”. In the US some are certified by LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), constructed and designed to fulfill these high standards for certification as a “green” building through the rating system. But there are additional criteria for libraries to fulfill the ideas and ideals of environmental sustainability. Besides being an environmental friendly building the library can act as educator and leader through driving an eco-friendly office management, eco-friendly user services, exemplary eco- friendly activities and offering information and courses in and eco-friendly lifestyle. Drawing upon a recently defended master thesis in Germany, the purpose of the paper is to propose the development of a sector-specific certificate to award libraries as a “Green library”. The certificate is awarded not only for building aspects but specifically for services and management systems. The objective of this paper, presented at the IFLA conference, is to define systematically all aspects of an environmentally sustainable library through a certification system. And additionally, to recommend Environmental Sustainability and Libraries SIG (ENSULIB), as the only official worldwide initiative for promoting (awarding?) green libraries with an “ENSULIB Green Library Certificate”.

Karioja, Elina (2013). How to evaluate libraries’ sustainability? An approach to an evaluation model and indicators: Paper presented at IFLA WLIC 2013, Singapore.
This paper originated from conclusions I wrote down in doing my thesis about sustainability in libraries. At first it is necessary to understand library’s recycling role in society and its sustainable development in basic functions like borrowing and returning books or offering open and free space to the public. Environmental certifications like LEED or environmental management systems (ISO 14000) are not fully compatible with libraries and they lack the understanding of special features of libraries. Oulu University of Applied Sciences is planning a project in order to meet this need and creating an evaluation model and indicators of sustainable development for libraries. Sustainable areas taken into consideration in evaluating library’s sustainability could be space, green IT, strategies, collection management, location and environmental awareness of both public and staff. It is also noteworthy to consider different levels of analysis: users, library staff, decision makers and host organization. Users should be offered recycling points for books and waste, staff should be committed to sustainability and communicate their awareness. Library strategies should include a sustainable point of view. It is noteworthy that the library is often a part of a large organization in a municipality, town or school, college, university etc. If the host organization has an environmental management system, library is most likely a part of that. In cases where there is no environmental policy in a host organization, it is much more difficult to follow one. Sustainability needs commitment from every person in the organization. As a result of this project, a specific libraries’ environmental label and auditing system could be developed which would increase environmental awareness among staff and customers and would make libraries greener, more sustainable, which is the ultimate objective. One can optimistically state that this model could be used worldwide and this project made international from the very beginning.
