Sustainable Library Certification

The Sustainable Libraries Certification Program (SLCP) provides library leaders with a tested, structured path forward to increase the library’s commitment to environmental stewardship, economic feasibility, and social equity.

Our Green Team will work through 12 categories that help align our efforts with the triple bottom line:

  1. Organizational Commitment
  2. Energy
  3. Materials Management – Waste & Recycling
  4. Materials Management – Purchasing
  5. Transportation
  6. Land Use
  7. Water
  8. Collective Impact
  9. Social Cohesion
  10. Community Resilience
  11. Financial Sustainability
  12. Collections

This project is supported in whole or in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
