** Reminder **
Library Clean-Up Day has been scheduled for August 20, so mark your calendars! Take some time in the quieter summer months to look around your office and start collecting unused items to donate to Clean-Up Day. 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.
