Earlier this summer the Urban Libraries Council honored Arlington Public Library as its 2012 Top Innovator for Sustainability.

The council singled out the library’s “Bikes, Buildings and Broccoli” approach to transportation, energy and food sustainability as one of the factors that helped it win the award. Urban Libraries Council CEO Susan Benton spoke about the award at the July 24 County Board meeting, as seen in the video below from the county’s Arlington TV channel.

    Nothing would help “sustainability” more than shutting down the library and sending everyone home. That would be a real innovation.

    A very well deserved recognition of a standard setter.

    Sustainability is all well and good, but what about legacy?
