Sustainability is Now a Core Value of the Library Profession

In 2019 the Council of the American Library Association voted to make sustainability a core value of librarianship! “This is a pivotal time for libraries and the communities we serve,” said ALA President Loida Garcia-Febo. “Libraries are helping to better the education and the lifelong learning of the communities they serve. By adding sustainability to its core values, ALA is recognizing that libraries of all types can act as catalysts and inspire future generations to reach solutions that are not only sensible but essential to sustaining life on this planet.”
