Checklists on page 57 & 61 would be a useful place to start doing a full building assessment of green efforts. Chapter 5 has both big picture and small picture suggestions, which is nice.

The banning space heaters option would be quite unpopular in my library! Installing water filters on the faucets would save us at least $1,000 a year. That would be nice.

My biggest challenge is how to get other people energized & active. Mission impossible?

Skimmed through this book rather than read it. May consult it again when the time comes to renovate the library completely. Bit too dry. Was hoping for more practical tips and visuals of model green libraries. Great cover though...
