Sustainability Literature at The Saltaire Library

In 2020, in partnership with The Saltaire Library, and Miss Kate the SCA purchased over 100 books to appeal to both fledgling sustainability practitioners as well as to more advanced experts. There are reading choices for all to take advantage of and learn from. Titles were selected for both adults and children from the following categories: global warming, flora & fauna, gardening & composting, reducing waste, clean water.
