Earth Day

By your Happy Valley Librarians
March 31, 2024

April 22, Earth Day, marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. Today, Earth Day is widely recognized as the largest secular observance in the world, marked by more than a billion people every year as a day of action to change human behavior and create global, national and local policy changes to benefit the earth and its people. 

Earth Day is a good time to commit to increasing our environmental awareness and deepening our understanding of the impact that humans have on our planet. With this in mind, we are highlighting books for all ages about the natural world, climate change, living with less, hiking, and more.
