I don’t know if this has occurred to you, but using your public library is one of the greenest things you can do.  Our books and media are used many times over by our patrons, thus saving the earth’s resources and saving you money. 

And while you’re using the West Palm Beach Public Library, please check out some of the offerings in our new “Go Green” section on the Book Floor. 

Many of us are so busy that we’d just like a few simple ideas on how to go green.  You might enjoy It’s Easy Being Green by Crissy Trask, a small, friendly book with a number of painless, briefly stated ideas for green living. 

Some people like to go a little deeper.  For some philosophical underpinnings, you might turn to The World We Have by Thich Nhat Hanh, a Buddhist monk who writes eloquently about peace and ecology.  Alternatively, you might enjoy Confessions of an Eco-Sinner:  Tracking Down the Sources of My Stuff by Fred Pearce, which has some eye-opening information. 

“Green” books come in many varieties.  You will find selections on greener food, housing, and community.  Weddings and holidays tend to inspire conspicuous consumption in the best of us, and there are books on those topics, too. 

Please consider starting one new green habit today.  I’d suggest a visit to the library!

Happy reading!
