Science & Environment

Science and environment are woven into every minute of everyday life. We create, nurture, and expand our understanding of our world through thoughts and actions every day. Exploration is not limited to size: you can find wonder in a grain of sand or a whole galaxy. Your Library is a launch point for growth and discovery—check out our collection of books, videos, activities, and events to start a new scientific, environmental journey.

Your climate change resource.

Wherever you are on your journey of climate action, your Library is here for you.

On your resource page, we'll collect a variety of links leading you to positive action plans and news. We'll help you to deepen your knowledge of climate issues and connect you with local leaders and activities.
