World Water Day-March 22, 2011

World Water Day logo
Check out the Library's display about World Water Day located on the east end of the first floor of the Library.

About World Water Day

This is the first time in human history that most of the world's population live in cities: 3.3 billion people ...and the urban landscape continues to grow.
38% of the growth is represented by expanding slums, while the city populations are increasing faster than city infrastructure can adapt.

The objective of World Water Day 2011 is to focus international attention on the impact of rapid urban population growth, industrialization and uncertainties caused by climate change, conflicts and natural disasters on urban water systems. This year theme, Water for cities: responding to the urban challenge, aims to spotlight and encourage governments, organizations, communities, and individuals to actively engage in addressing the challenges of urban water management.

"At our library, people of all backgrounds come together for campus meetings, lectures and programs, to do research with the assistance of a trained professional, to find homework help, or just a quiet place to study."
