Have you wondered how to fast-forward your library as a model for sustainability and resilience? Refresh and update your library strategic planning thinking with emerging trends and strategies to "deep green" your programs and facilities. In this session you will learn from an anthropologist and an architect how to use future and systems thinking in combination with superior environmental design to build a sustainable and resilient library building in which to offer ecologically sound programs. You will learn about a range of green building and community standards such as LEED, CHPS, LEED Neighborhood Development and STAR Community Rating System TM, and how they can be integrated into a logic model. The logic model can then be used as a basis for grant proposals, programs, building and evaluation plans that will catapult your library into the forefront of library sustainability and resilience.
