Our Commitment to a Bird-Friendly New Branch
What Is Bird-Friendly Glass?
This special glass has dots etched into the surface every few inches. It interrupts the reflections birds see on windows and alerts them to the fact there is a surface present. It does not detract from the view humans have out the window. The library’s architect has specified Guardian Glass Bird1st Etch 17. The cost to install this glass over “regular” glass is $12,000.
As a public library, we have constant opportunities for teachable moments. We will incorporate the message about the importance of caring for wildlife and the environment when we give tours of the facility, and use the bird-friendly glass as an educational touchpoint with youth.
