Sustainability Strategies for Libraries & Communities—ALA Midwinter 2018

SustainRT is hosting a stellar panel of librarians, who will be discussing their sustainability initiatives and efforts to move towards a more equitable, healthy, and economically viable society. The session features four practitioners doing sustainability work in a range of institutional and consortial settings. 

Sustainability Strategies for Libraries & Communities is part of the Symposium on the Future of Libraries series and it takes place Monday, February 12 at 10:30AM. I think it’s going to be super interesting–hope you can make it!

I just got back from wonderful Chicago and the American Library Association Annual Conference!
