Environmentally Conscious in the Library Learning Commons

Throughout the new Library Learning Commons, you'll see numerous recycling stations...

In the areas with printers, there are new cabinets with slots cut in the top for recycling paper:

We also have new water fountains in the lobby area across from the restrooms:

One of the fountains has a place to refill your travel cups and water bottles, activated by a sensor.  It also measures the number of plastic bottles being saved from the landfill.  The new Library Learning Commons has only been open two weeks, and already the count is at 258!
