Are public libraries concerned about the environment?

    I would guess that officially it depends on the director of the library whether they are “concerned” about the environment, but if you look at what they do you could argue that libraries are definitely good for the environment.  First of all, they reuse one book many times when people sign them out instead of people buying their own books, which decreases the amount of paper used in the production of books and saves trees.  Most libraries also accept old books to add to their collection or have days when people come and buy used books.  This keeps more books out of landfills and once again relieves people of the need to buy new books and use more paper.
