The Temple University Ambler Library is a treasure trove of information about everything from sustainability, the environment and citizen science to ecology, aquaponics and conservation (and everything in between).

For Earth Day, the Library has selected a few materials from the extensive repository of information held by the Temple University library system; including, of course, the Ambler Campus Library and online materials. If you have questions, please contact for more information or instructions for obtaining the online materials. Celebrate the earth and how we live upon it, use it, and better yet, give back to it!
