Santa Fe Public Library Southside Branch Recognized for Commitment to Environmental Awareness

In celebration of Earth Month 2008, Seattle’s Best Coffee at Borders-Sanbusco recognized the Santa Fe Public Library Southside Branch for their commitment to green and sustainable living. The new library branch, a true example of “green” architecture, is energy efficient with rainwater harvesting, cistern storage, radiant heat, and natural light, which all boost the energy efficiency of the building.

The Santa Fe Public Library was recognized at a small reception on Wednesday, April 9th where Borders Sales Account Representative Ramon Ernesto Cruz presented the library leadership team with the “Earth Month Community Stewardship Award.” As a special treat, library staff were able to celebrate their hard work with coffee and bakery goodies.

Seattle’s Best Coffee is proud to recognize the Santa Fe Public Library Southside Branch as an outstanding community organization,” said Seattle’s Best Coffee district manager Kim Novak. “The Library’s environmental efforts help make a difference in the greater community for today and our future.”
