Abstract

The Strategies for facilitating environmental sustainability of a green library-Taipei experience

Due to its belief in the importance of creating a sustainable earth ecological environment, in November 2006, in the lush and abundant green environment of Beitou Park, Taiwan’s first diamond level green building was built - Taipei Public Library, Beitou Branch. The Beitou Branch makes every effort to promote sustainable development of environment, and amongst some of the concrete strategies are:providing green building visits, training green volunteers and holding a book club, collecting green building and ecological conservation collection and doing extension activities. In coordination with World Environment Day and using local resources, environmental groups are invited to cooperate on designing reading events relating to ecological conservation themes for different target reader groups. It is hoped that through diverse environmental education methods, the concept of cherishing the environment amongst book lovers will sprout.
