How green is your library?

Libraries have been in the business of ‘recycling’ for many years, leading the way as environmental champions, so if you’re looking for ways to be greener why not pop into one of our campus libraries today?

You can:
· Save your pocket as well as the environment by borrowing books, CDs, DVDs and much more.
· Use one of our mixed recycling bins for your used paper, card, metal and plastic items.
· Recycle your old mobile phones and Inkjet/Laser printer cartridges in the designated bins.

Did you also know that the electricity used at the Owen Library on our Mount Pleasant campus is supported by solar panels on our roof? Following successful planning permission, the panels were installed during the Easter vacation and will generate 6.6 kW of electricity, providing the library and its users with a more sustainable source of power for the future.

So go on, give your green credentials a boost and start using your library today!
