    Discover what role you can play in a sustainable future today

      at the Santa Monica Public Library.


    The library's sustainability collection provides a wide range of relevant books, magazines, and audiovisual materials that can be checked out.  You'll find material on subjects as diverse as interior design and architecture, sustainable landscaping and organic gardening, water conservation, sustainable living and social responsibility.

    The Library offers docent lead tours the third Friday of the month at 12:30 pm. The tours cover all aspects of the building: the library collections, history, art, architecture and the sustainable features of the building.

    In 2007, the library launched the Green Prize for Sustainable Literature. The Green Prize has been created to encourage and commend authors, illustrators, and publishers who produce quality books for adults and young people that make significant contributions to, support the ideas of, and broaden public awareness of sustainability.

    You can also visit the City's Office of Sustainability and the Environment website to see how you can protect the environment for a more sustainable future for our community.
