TWIN FALLS, Idaho — 'Invest in Our Planet' is the 2022 Earth Day theme and the Twin Falls Public Library played their role in celebrating with the community.

TFPL Program Specialist CJ Rasmusson said engaging with and educating the community is an important role for the library.

“Libraries are all about giving out information in all ways, shapes and form. Especially in Idaho where the environment and wilderness is so important," Rasmusson said. "We feel that it’s important to give out information about how we can keep Idaho wild, open and clean so generations to come can enjoy it.”

Idaho Conservation, CSI Herrett Center, Idaho Master Gardeners, Everybody House,and Idaho powered joined the Earth Day celebration.

At the celebration, attendees played and learned about reptiles, learned how to conserve energy, how to keep nature clean, planted green bean seeds and more.

“We need to put resources back in conserving our home where we all live and all share this planet and space. So keeping it preserved for future generations is incredibly important," Rasmusson said.
