Sign up for the ALA Virtual Membership Meeting June 4!
Why? The resolution on the importance of sustainable libraries will be introduced - the first resolution from SustainRT (and the first introduced at a virtual membership meeting)!
June 4, 1:30pm Central -- register now!
The goals of the resolution are to inspire ALA to act as an organization to:
recognize the important and unique role libraries play in wider community conversations about resiliency, climate change, and a sustainable future and begin a new era of sustainable leadership in order to act on economic, environmental and socially equitable viability of choices made on behalf of the association;
enthusiastically encourage activities -- as an association, and for its membership, library schools and state associations -- to proactively apply sustainable practices in their facilities, operations, policy, technology, programming, partnerships and library school curricula; and
direct ALA staff, divisions and round tables to pursue sustainable choices when planning their conferences and meetings
actively promote best practices of sustainability through ALA publications, research and educational opportunities to reach our shared goal of vital, visible and viable libraries for the future.
