The Kathleen Clay Edwards Family Branch is a unique natural resource for the City of Greensboro. The library’s environmental focus seeks to connect people with nature using educational, inclusive and safe experiences in the natural environment and advance the field of environmental education through sound research and practice. In addition to the library’s extensive collection of nature, gardening, and environmental resources for children and adults, the library offers many environmental programs for residents of all ages.
