Burlington Public Library brings premier environmental resource—GreenFILE—to Burlington Patrons

If you’re looking for the real skinny on environmental issues, look to Burlington Public Library’s GreenFILE. GreenFILE is a collection of research level articles covering all aspects of human impact on the environment. This free resource covers the environmental effects of individuals, corporations, and governments and what can be done at each level to minimize negative impacts. Subjects include climate change, green building, pollution, and much more. GreenFILE is great for homework and general knowledge. All of the articles within GreenFILE are checked for accuracy. All you need is an Internet connection and a Burlington Public Library card. If you’d like a one-on-one help session to learn to use GreenFILE, call us at (781) 270-1691 for a 45 individual Book a Librarian appointment.
