Join our Facebook group Earth Day celebration with green books giveaways and tree planting!

Earth Day is just around the corner (April 22) and Eco-Libris has a busy month coming - from a celebration of green reading with the Chicago Bulls to an Earth Day campaign with Raincoast Books in Canadian Bookstores and a couple of new collaborations with publishers, including Barefoot Books, Beaufort Books and Bookhouse Publishing (check out our updates here for more information).

As busy as this month is we don't want to forget it's all about the celebration of Earth Day. This Earth day we have many green books to give away and many trees to plant. And we wish to celebrate it with as many friends as possible! We set up a goal of increasing our number of Facebook group members to at least 1,000 members by the end of the month.

We started with 581 members on April 1 and already we have 96 new members which brings us to 677 members all together! And we're not counting only new members, we're counting trees! For every new member (until we reach the 1000th member) Eco-Libris will plant a new tree with our planting partners!

And we also have great green books to give away! Since we needed at the beginning at least 14 new members a day, we decided to have a raffle of a new book each day we'll meet this goal. We're giving away great green books of an author or publisher that works with Eco-Libris! We have great books waiting for you, such as:

- Green Beginning by Avrim and Vicki Topel
- Sammy and Sue Go Green Too! by Suzanne Corso
- Little Green Books (Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing)
- The Barefoot Book of Earth Tales by Dawn Casey
- Gardening Eden by Michael Abbaté

And more! We'll add more information about all of the books on our wall during this month, so stay tuned and check out our group (and join it if you haven't done it yet :-) at

With your assistance by April 30, we'll succeed to increase our community to (at least) 1,000 members and plant hundreds of new trees!

Happy and Green April!
