We are pleased to present you with the NEW

the details that will be available for all books in
Web Site Development
There has been a tremendous amount of work done on developing
this web site over the past four years, by a combination
of over a hundred volunteers and summer students. That
work has largely focused on developing a customized
database, and entering the detailed information about
the books and other resource materials that we carry.
We have almost three thousand items in the database.
We hope to have a fully functioning web site up by the
fall of 2005. We may have a LIST of books available
here online at some point this summer. In
the mean time, you can always contact us by email, phone,
or fax to inquire about and order our books.

ways of living through education. The areas that we

renewable energy; alternative grey water and black water
treatment systems and composting toilets; ecovillages,
cohousing, and intentional communities; communication,
facilitation, consensus, and conflict resolution skill

We offer workshops and courses in these areas, as well
as occasional internships, through our organization
and in partnership with other people and organizations.

Sustainable Living Books is
a volunteer-run community service bookstore that is a
project of the Sustainable Living Network. We carry over
3.000 items focused on the aspects of sustainable and
healthy living represented by the Sustainable Living Network.
Over the past five years, we have been making a wide range
of books and other resources available at eco events and
festivals. A team of volunteers takes the books to 12
eco events per year, (please click here
for a list of upcoming events). In addition to the live
events, we will be going up online here at www.sustainablelivingbooks.com
in the fall of 2005.
Living Books a sustainable community service bookstore:
The margins in the book industry, and any profit we
make on sales goes into inventory that we bring to shows.
This project would not exist without the work of over

to develop this community service bookstore. We would
really appreciate your contribution to helping us make
this project sustainable: you can contribute by volunteering,
