The Green Libraries Directory

This directory lists libraries in the United States and Canada that have implemented some form of green planning.  Although having a green building is not the only way for a library to “plan green”, the directory focuses on libraries whose buildings have received LEED certification.

 

Compiling the directory involved multiple searches of the United States Green Building Council’s databases of LEED-certified projects and registered projects as well as searches in Library Journal’s website, the April 2009 edition of American Libraries, the spring 2009 American Libraries Digital Supplement, and greenreportcard.org.
