Today is Earth Day. We hope that everyone will do what they can. We went out early this chilly morning to pick up garbage around the library. We have also recycled some old library cards into bookmarks for you to take home if you stop in today. So you you see, everyone can do something that will help, no matter how small.
“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”

As a Wisconsin senator, Nelson contributed to important liberal reforms but struggled for years to interest his colleagues in environmental protections. So he turned instead to the people, proposing April 22, 1970 as a day for Americans to speak out about the environmental crises they faced. Earth Day's massive public support forced politicians to see the severity of the problems and the extent of public concern. The first Earth Day galvanized Congress into creating some of the most important U.S. environmental legislation.
