"One Book One Community" Part of the Eco-Tech Tale @ GA/GI"

The Eco-Tech Building (aka the Bloomfield Garfield Activities Center) will be bursting at the seams with green info that's good for the whole family. We're playing host to Urban Tree Forge, Global Links, Creative Reuse, Find the Rivers, Bike Pittsburgh, The Student Conservation Association, The Pittsburgh Technology Council, "Save the Igloo" and the Pittsburgh Chess Club. Our most recent partner is the Allegheny County Library Association with their new initiative "One Book, One Community."

We knew that reading was fundamental...but it's also a "green experience," says the ACLA. The goal of One Book is to establish common ground across communities by bringing individuals together for stimulating conversation and to broaden perspectives. "What better opportunity than when Pittsburgh has been chosen as the host city for World Environment Day."

The 8th selection for One Book is "A Walk in the Woods" by Bill Bryson, a story of one man's humor-filled adventures along the Appalachian Trail.

The Geek Art/Green Innovators Festival will be one of several community partners and venues that will support the One Book Program throughout 2010. For more information call the Allegheny County Library Association. 412-921-1123.
