April 22 marks the 39th anniversary of Earth Day–a day set aside to remind us of what we should be doing year-round to reduce our environmental footprint. “Recycling, reducing… consumption of goods, composting, using sustainable energy sources and taking public transfortation are just a few of the actions you can take to, literally, make every day Earth Day.”
Celebrate National Library Week by coming to the library to view our display on libraries. It includes information on Waubonsee’s new Library Technical Assistant Degree and Certification Program that’s being offered beginning next fall.
