Green Is Golden for Milwaukee's Central Library

Some steps this national historic landmark has taken to get itself on a greener path include a green roof with solar panels, enough to power three homes a year. Then there are new florescent lights for the dome and LED lights in the rare books area not to mention the repairing of hundreds of steam traps.
The 115-year old library is actually part of a \"Better Buildings Challenge\" put forth by President Obama to reduce its energy use 20% by the end of the decade.
