A nationally certified Sustainable Building Advisor, a LEED AP, and a Certified Green Professional of the National Association of Home Builders, she has been involved in various aspects of sustainability. She worked locally on the former Spokane Mayor's Task Force on Sustainability and served as treasurer of the local Main Market Co-op natural food store. She has been a leader in promoting sustainability through the humanities by leading Spokane Community College's Hagan Foundation Center for the Humanities' three-year study of sustainability. She also served as a member of the Technical Advisory Committee of the American Association of Community Colleges Sustainability Task Force. She has served for the last two years as as a member of the U.S. Green Building Council's Greenbuild Special Programs Working Group. She co-taught the Sustainable Building Advisory course of study during the 2011-2012 academic year.

Steven L. Carr

While Steven L. Carr was serving on the ALA/IIDA Interior Design Award Committee of ALA's Library Leadership & Management Association (LLAMA) Building and Equipment Section, the idea for this book was born. (The first LEED AP librarian in the U.S., Anne Larsen, served on this committee; Steve was the second librarian in the U.S. so accredited.) Committee chair Dalia Corkrum was flying home to the state of Washington after an ALA conference, and she happened to meet her long-time colleague Mary Carr on the flight. When asked what she was up to, Carr replied that she was working on green buildings. Corkrum asked if Mary if she knew Steve Carr. Thus our harmonious and serendipitous collaboration??Carr2 as we refer to it??was formed!
