Testing-- my comments have been messed with with spam overload-- trying to see if we're back...

Great post! I think this shows the importance of listening to and encouraging our patrons. This interaction could have been a suggestion about a hand dryer and ended there, but instead it became a dialogue about sustainability that empowered the student. Hopefully, through this experience, the student will feel that he can make a difference in the library and ultimately in society.

Yes! I wish patrons in my public library would be more like the student in your post. Some are, but one can't have enough of a good thing.

Appreciate this article - working in state government, we are always thinking of ways to be more "green" and gradually we are practicing better eco-friendly habits.
