Sustainable Thinking for Building Community Resilience

Our future depends on citizens who are able to work together with empathy, respect, and understanding to adapt to the many challenges facing society. We will explore the importance of infusing the new core value of sustainability into everything we do, and demonstrate how libraries that lead into the future using “sustainable thinking” fulfill our mission as libraries in new and innovative ways. "Sustainable Thinking" is a concept that aligns the core values of libraries with the "Triple Bottom Line" definition of sustainability (i.e. the intersection of economic feasibility, environmental stewardship and social equity) to inspire investment and build support for your library in the future.  
Rebekkah Smith Aldrich is the executive director of the Mid-Hudson Library System and the author of Sustainable Thinking: Ensuring Your Library’s Future in an Uncertain World and Resilience.
