Create more environmental + social good. Join the Earth Day Ecochallenge!

Today, April 22, 2020, marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.
A-B Tech and Locke Library invite you to join the Earth Day EcoChallenge team for A-B Tech! Pick a challenge or two and have some fun with it! This opportunity is open to the A-B Tech community of students, staff, and faculty. This challenge runs through the month of April.
Although we won't be having an Earth Day Festival on campus this spring, anyone can join in this challenge and do a little something for the Earth or learn something you might not have known about our planet, all while "staying home and staying safe."

Here is the link to join our team:

Dedicate your actions to Earth this April to celebrate the 50th Earth Day with us! Connect the dots between your values + your actions. Join Earth Day Ecochallenge!

Construction on the Locke Library entranceway will begin Tuesday, July 9th, and continue for approximately the next 4 weeks. During this time, the entrance to the Library will be through the double set of doors currently used as the emergency exit on the north end of the building near the Beech Tree deck. The circulation functions of the Library will be moved near the back entrance to facilitate ease of use by patrons. Reference Librarians will also be located at the circulation desk to assist students with research. The Library computer area on the main floor and the reference area and study areas will not be available during the construction.

A Compost Station with free tote bags
A Picnic Lunch (be sure to bring your A-B Tech ID)
A Used Book Sale – to support our student emergency fund
An Obstacle Race in Coman Gym hosted by the Health and Fitness Science program
Hard to Recycle Collection – household batteries, ink cartridges, cardboard, cell phones, bagged packing peanuts, bubble wrap, and air pillows.
