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 to small, that we are making.


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 have pledged not to use any herbicides.

Trash Collecting

We pick up trash on the grounds daily.

Print Releaf

We have partnered with Print Releaf who has pledged to plant trees to offset our use of printing paper.
