If you want need more ideas of ways to celebrate Earth Day, you can visit the library for  interesting books, films, magazines and more about all kinds of topics related to conservation and the environment (browse the 300s, 500s and 600s in the stacks or ask a librarian for help). Teens should also check out books nominated for YALSA’s 2010 Popular Paperbacks list “Change Your World.” Titles on this list feature stories about teens who take the world into their own hands and make a difference through politics, environmentalism and/or activism. Do you want to change your world, too? While you’re at the library ask about volunteering there.
