On April 21st, for one entire day, the UK generated electricity without coal



It's a start. Not since 1882 has the UK not used coal to generate electricity. 

Energy systems are changing.

The UK is enthusiastically adopting low-carbon electricity production. Despite the current regime in Washington DC, this is a trend that has its own legs, is cost effective and won't stop growing just because someone doesn't 'believe in science'. 

I sourced this from this short read in The Hub at Mitsubishi Electric: http://bit.ly/2oJah4H

National Library Workers Day - Tuesday, 11 April 2017. Recognize your amazing library workers.@alaapa #NLWD17

NLWD2017Article directly quoted from Beatrice Calvin, CDF, Manager, Professional Development at American Library Association. American Library Association - LinkedIn   PhtoBCAlvin

"... know any library workers who should be recognized for the great work they do, their positive outlook, or how the wonderful way they assist patrons? Let’s take the time to show our appreciation for those fantastic library stars!

Consider submitting their names to the ALA-APA Galaxy of Stars as part of National Library Workers Day celebration.

National Library Workers Day (NLWD) is Tuesday, April 11, 2017. It is a day for library staff, users, administrators and Friends groups to recognize the valuable contributions made by all library workers.

The ALA-APA helps libraries and individuals prepare to celebrate by featuring a range of creative suggestions on its website. The National Library Workers Day web page encourages friends, patrons, employers and co-workers to “Submit a Star” by providing a brief testimonial about a favorite library employee. Each testimonial (listing first names, library type and city/state location only) will be posted on the NLWD’s Galaxy of Stars page. You may nominate as many library workers as you like.

Has your library celebrated National Library Workers Day in the past? Is your library planning to recognize and honor your library workers this year? Tell us about your plans. Please send your ideas and information to libraryworklife@ala.org. They will be posted in Library Worklife, the official newsletter of the ALA-APA. Be sure to share your celebrations on Twitter, using #NLWD17 and/or post to the NLWD Facebook page.

There’s still time to plan your celebrations to recognize library workers everywhere.
