Environmental Perspectives

Al Gores book and recent film, An Inconvenient Truth shines a spotlight on the continuing degradation of the global environment. The library has books and films about the environmental problems, such as global warming, overdevelopment, and deforestation; it also has books and films about solutions to environmental degradation, such as sustainable development, population control, and international agreements to improve the environment. The library will display some of these books and films in the library foyer in September. Feel free to come to the library and borrow any of these titles.
