This website has been created and maintained by the Mount Prospect Public Library staff and is a project of the Library’s Green Committee.  The Green Committee’s role is to promote and develop green initiatives within the Library and in the community.  The committee plans an annual “Green Farmers’ Market” at the Mount Prospect Lion’s Club Farmers’ Market (with assistance from the village of Mount Prospect Public Works Department). Each year a theme is chosen; examples include organic gardening/composting, alternative energy and transportation. At this event,  community experts relevant to the chosen theme are invited to discuss, promote, demonstrate the benefits of a greener lifestyle to the market attendees.
