Coronado Public Library is Emerald Green, Ocean Blue!

“The Coronado library is an environmentally friendly institution on many levels. In a world of plastics, our books are made of a biodegradable, recyclable and renewable resource: paper. Furthermore, the items are reused many times before being sold or donated for even more uses, or else recycled. The sharing economy is all the rage at the moment, cutting waste and bringing other economic and ecological advantages. Dockless bikes and Uber seem to be everywhere but the range of items that can be shared seems to grow daily. Nothing represents the sharing economy better than the library. Why spend all that money to buy a book to read once and then discard when you can share our clean and up-to-date collection with other members of the Coronado community? The library is also increasingly used as a co-working space where visitors can take advantage of shared resources like our robust Wi-Fi, printers and can now use a phone or bring in a coffee. Online courses such as Photoshop or language learning and subscription services like ancestry research can be prohibitively expensive to individuals or small businesses but are available for free under the sharing auspices of the library. Visit  Coronadolibrary.org  to learn more.”
