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.
