Many of you have gotten a taste of our permaculture library over the years while attending permaculture workshops and events. Some of you have even helped schlep our “traveling library” in and out of our teaching spaces in our now-infamous blue cargo boxes!
Well, we have finally taken the leap of cataloguing our growing collection (major shouts to LibraryThing.com of Portland, Maine by the way!), getting glass-fronted library cupboards for our office and will soon be setting up our “open library hours” down at The Resilience Hub on Anderson Street.
The library (not fully loaded into the system yet) contains more than two hundred titles – books, periodicals and DVDs – on everything permaculture, regenerative agriculture, food forestry, green and natural building and renewable energy. Want to research plants for your own property or farm? Thinking about building a cob oven? You’ll be able to come on down to the Hub and use our resources to help your planning. We will probably pair those library hours with some “Ask a Permaculture Expert” clinics and pop-up cafe events as well! Our library cupboards will be on wheels, so we won’t rule out rolling these things into the parking lot when the weather is good.
Check back for more details soon but, in the meantime, you can track our growing catalog online anytime!
