AHML is one of 60 libraries in Illinois selected as a pilot site for “Go Green @ Your Library,” a state-wide, collaborative project with the Illinois Library Association and the Field Museum in Chicago facilitated by funding from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.

Attendees do not need to have read the book in order to participate. Register online or at the Reception Desk on the second floor, 847-392-0100, for:

Sign up for our next Reading Green book discussion. February's book is Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization by Lester R. Brown.
 
Here's what the publisher says about this book:
 
"As fossil fuel prices rise, oil insecurity deepens, and concerns about climate change cast a shadow over the future of coal, a new energy economy is emerging. Wind, solar, and geothermal energy are replacing oil, coal, and natural gas, at a pace and on a scale we could not have imagined even a year ago. For the first time since the Industrial Revolution, we have begun investing in energy sources that can last forever. Plan B 4.0 explores both the nature of this transition to a new energy economy and how it will affect our daily lives."
 
Books are available for you to check out. Even if you haven't read the book, please plan on attending and learn about the themes discussed in the book.
 
Date and time: Thursday, February 24, 7 p.m. or Saturday, February 26, 10 a.m.
