Sixty librarians from across Illinois attended an all-day workshop at The Field Museum led by ECCo’s Urban Anthropology Team. The workshop trained participants to use Museum resources and ECCo’s tools to develop green action plans that build on their communities’ cultural and natural assets. It was part of Go Green @ Your Illinois Library, a project of the Illinois Library Association funded by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO). Go Green @ Your Illinois Library resulted in a website that houses all tools. The project will conclude with a webinar open to Illinois library staff and the general public, to be held February 22, 2011 from 1-3 pm.
