Greetings PNW libraries -

I wanted to share information and our recent blog posts from the Resilient
Communities: Libraries Respond to Climate Change
<http://www.ala.org/tools/programming/climatechange>, a recent donor
initiative of ALA with a goal to empower libraries to engage their
communities in programs and conversations that address the climate change
crisis. The application for libraries  - of all types! - will open this
summer for starting in fall 2020 (project guidelines
<http://www.ala.org/tools/programming/climatechange/guidelines>) Participating
libraries will receive grant funding, materials and support.  Myself along
with Madeleine Charney *(Research Services Librarian of UM Amherst)*, April
Griffith (*Director, Carnegie Public Library, Eureka Springs, Ar)* and Juan
Rubio (*Digital Media & Learning Manager, Seattle Public Library*) are
advisors for Resilient Communities

In the mean time we are pushing out *some blog posts* that we hope are
inspiring and help you and your libraries especially this month with Earth
Day celebrating 50 years VIRTUALLY :

   - *Less Prep, More Presence: Why 2020 Is Not the Year to Skip Earth Day*
   - *Ready-to-Go Story Times for Earth Day 2020
   this was in conjunction with SustainRT:  the Booklist committee
   <http://www.ala.org/rt/sustainrt/book-list>, and support from Outreach
   <http://www.ala.org/rt/sustainrt/outreach>and other SustainRT members!

Enjoy and stay well!
