Earth Day 2021

The theme for Earth Day 2021 is Restore Our Earth.

This theme focuses on natural processes and emerging green technologies that can restore harmony with the world's ecosystems.

To contribute to Earth Day 2021 we've gathered together a selection of great material available at Kingston Libraries.

Scroll below for items available in our library catalogue to borrow or stream. If there's something else you're after, feel free to Ask a Librarian for more suggestions.

To learn new sustainable living skills check out the series of sustainable living webinars being offered by Kingston Council in partnership with neighbouring Councils.
