The green movement is making inroads even in the lil’ town of Garner. I was in the library last week, lamenting my near-illiteracy while I looked for the picture book section, when I saw these two mysterious boxes in a shelf.
Library Reuses Rubber Bands
The library is now recycling paper and reusing rubber bands! Hoo-rah! They have a reservation system where they print out your name and rubber-band the paper to a book, so you can find your reserved book.

I guess they used to just expect you to throw away the paper and rubber band (committing a major sin against Mother Earth), but they have seen the light and are now reusing them.

Anyhoo, it’ll be good to see more and more business start finding ways to both help the environment AND save money. A hearty kudos to the Garner Southeast Library.
