Clinton Library offers 'green' tours

Clinton Library offers 'green' tours. I did not realize that the Clinton Library was built in such an environmentally friendly manner. It was and the staff of the library are proud of this fact.

From the site:

Visitors to Bill Clinton's presidential library probably wouldn't guess that they're treading on rubber-tire floors and looking up at soda-can ceilings. But the library now offers a special "green" tour to feature its environmentally friendly construction.

Before architects started designing, they knew former President Clinton wanted his library on the banks of the Arkansas River to be energy efficient. The final product was the first and only presidential library to earn an award from the U.S. Green Building Council for environmental design.

The library started offering the "green" tours in late September for a weekend meeting of the American Solar Energy Society. But the tour proved so popular that the museum now offers it each Saturday and for groups upon request.
