Sustainable Saturdays at Silver Lake Library
Beginning in February 2010, the Silver Lake Public Library will present a series of programs that will provide information and guidance to local residents about various different aspects of sustainable living. The series will be free to the public and will include talks and workshops by sustainability experts and documentary films about a range of sustainable practices. Space is limited, so reservations are required. Please call the Library at (323) 913-7453 to reserve your place.
Our first talk is about the Library itself:
Saturday February 6, 11am
The Integrated LEED Design of Silver Lake Library
Talk with Q&A by Thomas Michali, Partner, M2a Milofsky Michali and Cox Architects
Mr. Michali will present a brief introduction to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) requirements and how the design process for the Silver Lake Library integrated green design features into the planning, design and construction to target the goal of reaching a Gold level building.
The series is organized by Meher McArthur, a Silver Lake resident, writer of the “Keen to be Green” column in the Los Feliz Ledger, and member of Sustainable Silver Lake in conjunction with the Silver Lake Library.
