PJFL Goes Green!Here's how we do it at the Library!
• Patrons are offered the choice of checking out a Library tote or purchasing one for $1 to carry checked out items
• Our outdated program flyers get used as: Scrap paper. We Print computer passes & inter-office memos.
• We no longer provide hot and cold cups for staff to use on breaks. Everyone
has brought in their own mug or glass.
• Most staff use refillable water bottles.
• We have a recycle bin in our staff lounge area and in the Teen Center for non-paper recyclables such as #1 and #2 plastic containers, and aluminum foil.
• We recycle our ink and toner cartridges.
• We participate in the Better World Books Program which sells discarded books and donates the proceeds to charities which support literarcy.
• The Friends Library bookstore sells gently used books. Re-purposing books!
• Our cleaning products are Green Seal Certified.
• We collect & recycle batteries at our YA Center. How Can I Help?
