Libraries for the Future, a national organization of public library advocates, is renergizing its campaign to strengthen the relationship between libraries and communities, particularly within low income communities. Two of its recent campaigns are aimed directly at environmental activists and journalists. In recognition of Earth Day, LFF has revised and updated The Environmentalist's Guide to the Public Library, an informational handbook for environmental organizers. The guide provides advice on how to draw on library resources, profiles of model library programs and the advocates who helped create them, and tips on how to work with libraries to increase access to environmental information. To order a free copy of the guide, call Cynthia Lopez at 800/542-4918, email lff@lff.org or visit LFF's Web page at www.lff.org.The organization has also launched the Pump Up the Volume campaign to encourage individuals to check out a book on environmental issues on Earth Day. Contact LFF for upcoming user "check out" days. Activists also are encouraged to take advantage of their local library as a central place in their community, "an ideal place to distribute materials on events."
