Butterfield is Going Green: Sustainable Libraries Initiative Certification

The Butterfield Library is participating in the Sustainable Libraries Initiative Certification program.  We will be taking you along the journey with us!  Visit this page often to see all of the changes, big and small, that we are making.

Pollinator Gardens

We have planted three separate pollinator gardens on the grounds of the library.

Increased Recycling

We have added a recycling container to our Reading Garden.


We pledge not to use any herbicides on library property.

Trash Collecting

We pick up trash on the grounds daily.

Print Releaf

We have partnered with PrintReleaf, an organization which plants trees to offset the printer paper we use.

Library of Things

Our vast Library of Things helps you access the equipment you need without having to buy it. 


We partner with local educators and organizations to bring you sustainability-focused programming.
