Every year Kirkwood Library Services put up a display in honor of Earth Day (April 22nd). We also do a post about new Earth Day related books the library has added over the previous year. These titles are available at the Cedar Rapids branch of Kirkwood Library Services, but you can request them to be sent to any other center. We hope to strive to make every day Earth Day and it’s always a good time to learn more. Check out the round up of books on ecology topics from this year and previous years below.
