Crafts: the backbone of children's events everywhere. There's nothing quite like gluing pipe cleaners and pompoms, cutting paper and coloring, wrapping and taping, painstakingly creating ... and then throwing these masterpieces in the trash.

Louv, Richard (2019). Welcome to the Natural Library: The Essential role of libraries in creating nature-rich communities
Libraries exist in every kind of neighborhood; they already serve as community hubs; they're often supported by Friends groups; they have existing resources (nature books); they're often more flexible than schools; they're known for being safe---and they're a perfect, if unexpected, institution to connect people to nature.

As a librarian pursuing an MBA at the University of South Florida, I've been learning about approaches to organizational sustainability that have shaped my library work. In business school, we're taught that sustainability is like a stool with three legs representing its environmental, financial, and social aspects. Without any one of these legs, the stool collapses.

When members of the Howard County (Ind.) Master Gardener Association became enchanted by the idea of creating a local butterfly habitat, their first stop was Kokomo--Howard County Public Library (KHCPL). Not for books and information but to get the project off---and into---the ground.

Some books make us sad because trees had to die for them. It would have been better if they had been published as e-books. But are digital books really better for the environment than printed ones? This question cannot be answered easily. To begin with: Used printed books, such as library books, score well from an ecological point of view.
Manley, Will (2013). Will's world. Warming up to end times: What the coming apocalypse means for libraries. American Libraries, 44(11/12), 56
The author discusses the impact that global warming and climate change is having on libraries. He offers suggestions for libraries, including providing access to global warming research through public programming, making library buildings less reliant on fossil fuels, and printing resources on apocalyptic survival skills. The author also looks at the American Library Association (ALA) contributions to environmental awareness.

In 2019, Batesville (Ind.) Intermediate School began a book club using selections inspired by the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the organization's blueprint for addressing global challenges like poverty and climate change by 2030. Batesville's students use lessons they glean from the club to engage with their community and the world, earning the school the American Library Association's 2020 Sara Jaffarian School Library Program Award for Excellence in Humanities Programming.

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. In spring 2018, University of Central Florida (UCF) Libraries staff members were exploring ways to expand programming beyond the classroom. Earth Day gave us the perfect opportunity to devise a program that promoted campus sustainability practices and expanded our network of partners.

Purpose. The paper deals with the Croatian ``Green libraries'', discussing the meaning of the library programs and services focused on educating users about sustainable development of society and importance of environmental protection as well as learning life-improving skills that affect not only individuals but the whole society. The goal of the article is to offer an insight into the range of ideas and possibilities that Croatian libraries have accomplished so far in their efforts to effectively connect librarianship and ecology. Methodology. The examples are presented chronologically beginning with the year 2011, when the Association of Istria Librarians started the ``Green library'' project, within which many green library programs were initiated and have been carried out ever since in different types of libraries throughout Croatia. The discussed examples of green libraries were selected by certain criteria: they were presented at professional conferences, described in published articles, or there were information about them on the libraries' web pages. Findings. The accomplishments of the Croatian ``Green libraries'' prove that libraries conduct a wide array of activities as part of the program. The cooperation between libraries and different institutions, associations, and individuals that deal with sustainable development, fauna and fl ora preservation, and environmental protection is particularly important. Many of these programs have been initiated through s direct cooperation between libraries and local communities, proving the importance of recognizing and taking into account library users' demands. Social implications. In its ``Statement on Libraries and Development'' (2013), IFLA invited policy and decision makers to recognize libraries as reliable institutions carrying out programs which contribute signifi cantly to solving sustainability issues concerning the entire community. Originality. The article offers the fi rst overview of the previous Croatian practices and experiences with ``Green libraries'', which can serve as guidelines and motivate other librarians in their future work.
