Start thinking about Library Clean-Up Day now!

Submitted by Cathy O’Connell for the Green Team

Library Clean-Up Day isn’t until August, but it’s never too soon to start thinking about it. As the spring semester ends, take the time to look around your office and start collecting unused items to donate to Clean-Up Day. Don’t forget your electronic files as well! The official date is still to be determined, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a head start. Start your gathering early and make your space cleaner and greener.

If you have things you’d like to get rid of before Clean-Up Day, you can post items Libraries’ Green Exchange, a free-cycle type exchange for workplace items that are no longer used.
