Upgraded and Grounded: Community Efficiency and Sufficiency in the Midst of Climate Change is a six-month series dedicated to the discussion of extreme weather’s impact on our lives and the actions we can take to respond with thought and care. This series is made possible by the American Library Association’s Resilient Communities: Libraries Respond to Climate Change grant. A huge thank you goes to our partner, the City of Alexandria Transportation and Environmental Services, especially Sustainability Coordinator Ellen Eggerton and Stormwater Manager Jessica Lessetter, for their assistance in planning and presenting events as part of this series.
