Climate Change and our Future: Mitigation, Adaptation and Dialogue
This fall, the Mad River Valley Libraries explored ideas around adaptation strategies to build resilience for our community in the face of climate change. This three part series featured selected titles, film quality videos and conversations with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) science partner Dr. Leslie Kanat from Johnson State College. We were one of 50 public libraries nationwide receiving grants to host this “book club meets science cafe” developed by a team of library professionals, scientists, and filmmakers. Their organizations include the Califa Group, Dawson Media Group, and Goodman Research Group, with generous funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National Science Foundation. Check out the website below for more information and details about the Mad River Valley and Climate Change.
