Is your library contemplating a building project? Have you considered sustainability, or even LEED certification? In this session you will hear from librarians and architects who have experience with building green. Learn practical details to negotiate the process, including how to prioritize different levels of LEED certification, working with administration and other stakeholders, and, of course, funding. Also learn more about green building--different levels of LEED certification and alternative sustainable building standards, and is sustainable construction really more expensive? Participants in this session will walk away with concrete insights into the process of building green at their libraries. This program will be helpful for anyone who is embarking on a renovation or new library design.
