Green Libraries : Renewing the Future

We invite Libraries and Librarians in South Africa who want to explore what 'sustainability' means to them.  We are looking for projects that explore how they can develop strategies and tools to promote sustainability in their work and organization, and in their contact with and impact on their communities, to apply to take part in this project.
