Developed by the Dutch company Sprang, Ecofont uses 20% less ink than regular fonts.
The font is free to download and free to use. Why not give it a try!

Did you know:
- The Library has an Environmental Plan? We are committed to our current environmental sustainability practices and "... to investigate future practices and "Green" opportunities to encourage the environmental awareness of the Board of Trustees, Library Staff and the Roselle Community."
- You can drop-off used inkjet cartridges, old eyeglasses and hearing aids, and, of course, Campbell Soup labels (Labels for Education program), at the Library? More drop-off opportunities coming soon.
- The Library subscribes to eMagazine, a bimonthly "clearinghouse" of information, news and resources for people concerned about the environment who want to know "What can I do?" to make a difference.
