The library staff is really going all out to maintain consistency in our yoga training in spite of the many challenges created by early voting at Ocee. Thank you, Ryland, Karen, and Carla!"

Secure Document Shredding / Recycling

The Roswell Recycling Center - 11570 Maxwell Rd, Alpharetta 30009 - has been at the heart of the city's recycling efforts for the past three decades. What started as a grassroots initiative organized by a group of citizens has grown into an environmental force in the community, offering recycling services to both residents and non-residents.

Keep Johns Creek Beautiful has a number of programs ongoing and throughout the year.

Friends of Ocee Library accepts donations of newer books in good condition to re-sale in the Book Nook as our fundraiser for the library. 

If your books have seen better days, please drop them at Webb Bridge Middle School for recycling - magazines, too.

On this 48th Earth Day, the focus is on plastic pollution. Plastic is threatening our planet's survival, from poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our streams and landfills. Together, we can make a difference. Refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle!
