Teens Go Green!

Earth Day is the perfect day to think about what it means to be green.  Our YA display is full of nonfiction about the importance of being green, and fiction about what happens when the environment is taken for granted.  Each book has a bookmark that you can reuse, and then recycle.  You can find more resources at Earth Day Network's Billion Acts of Green, including links to take the Ecological Footprint Quiz, make your own act of green, and take an online pledge.

Kite Flying at the Fairbanks Branch
