Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day!

Earth Day 2020 logo, with text earthday.org 50 Years Earth Day 2020

Join others in celebrating Earth Day’s 50th anniversary on April 22, 2020. What began as a protest by 20 million Americans in 1970 has become the planet’s largest civic event. This year’s theme is climate action — looking at the challenges and opportunities on the global scale. While Earth Day is usually celebrated with projects and gatherings, this year it will be held online with a digital mobilization effort across social media platforms. Learn more about the history of Earth Day and online opportunities at earthday.org.

The library has put together a list of online books, articles, and resources about climate change that you can explore. We also provide access to streaming videos through Films on Demand! You can take a deeper dive into the subject by using a Research Guide on Environmental Policy or Environmental Science, or by reaching out to the Environmental librarian.
