Abstract

Libraries are social organizations and ultimately the responsibility of saving the environment equally lies on the part of libraries also, as they not only disseminate information on environmental sustainability, but also can create environmental awareness in the society with the implementation of green technology practices in the library. Introducing green culture into library certainly helps in reducing unnecessary waste and conservation of natural resources. Green technology practices and culture involve implementation of environmentally supportive and sustainable activities like construction of green library building, greening existing library facilities and services within the library. Accordingly, with all such greening practices libraries can act as a key factor in the environmental and sustainability movement. This paper gives examples dealing with the ideas of how to go green in the library.
