Environmental group Macon Pride gave the library the recognition as an upstanding recycler in acclaim of its â€ścompleteâ€ť recycling program throughout the building. The library has recycling stations in every room, containers by each desk and in the kitchen for community meetings and staff lunches. The library staff also sends magazines and books to Friends of the Library for re-use and sponsors many programs, especially for children, in â€śup-cycling,â€ť which is the art of reusing potential throwaways to create new items.
â€śOur goal is to make it as convenient as possible for our staff and visitors to recycle,â€ť said Librarian Karen Wallace. â€śOur patrons deserve As for helping the library, community and county in this worthwhile effort.â€ť
Macon Pride has also honored exemplary recycling programs such as Caterpillar, Goshen Timber Frames, Collectiques, Tony Angel Media, Lifeâ€™s Bounty Bakery and CafĂ©, Rosebud Cottage, Roomful of Nuts, Mountain Valley Health Foods, Edward Jones Highlands Road, Great Smoky Mountains Fish Camp, UU Fellowship, and H&R Block.
