Book Display: Green Roofs and Rooftop Gardens
Next time you're in the library, be sure to check out the book display near the north windows. This month we spotlight green roofs, including a full range of topics: rooftop agriculture, plant selection, green roof maintenance, design, and construction. Our collection on this subject is flourishing--take a look! As usual, books in this open display area are available for checkout right away.
Entryway case features ecology and sustainability titles
student poster exhibit continues, the entryway display case features
local and regional ecology and sustainability titles, including some
gems that may be new to you. Sure, you've probably picked up Restoring the Pacific Northwest, and many of you have used Plant Technology of First Peoples in British Columbia. Have you seen From the Hands of a Weaver: Olympic Peninsula Basketry Through Time, though? Does Seattle and the Roots of Urban Sustainability: Inventing Ecotopia seem familiar? Discover the breadth and depth of our Pacific Northwest Connections Collection!
