The Library Book Nook - a place to exchange pre-loved books and save on the price of new textbooks, complete with a board (with online counterpart) where our clients may request and offer to sell or swap old textbooks.  Sustainable, social learning: it's what libraries were made for. #GreenUniLibrary

Colour coded recycling.  Amazing how expensive tripartite bins are (and how small their sections!) but they make waste separation convenient. #GreenUniLibrary

Labelled, green and waiting.  The challenge with recycling bins is not to get our clients to use them but to keep the odd cup of coffee from joining the empty cups! #DryRecyc #GreenUniLibrary
