The North Campus Library at the University of Missouri-St. Louis provides many green amenities to its students, faculty, and staff. One of the landmarks that is associated with the library is the pyramid that comes out of the ground outside of the library which serves as part of the roof of the Mercantile Museum. This allows for great energy conservation within the museum due to the natural light that is allowed in and compensates for the lack of lamps or light bulbs as a source of light. In addition, the Library has many recycling bins in the building which allows visitors to assist the environment by separating the trash from the recycling. The bins are very well marked which helps the public from getting confused.

Whenever I have an important test that I need to study for or a major paper that I need to write, I go to the Mercantile Library. Underneath the library's iconic pyramid is a nice study area with long tables and fairly comfortable chairs. This is the place where I get most of my work done. This study area does not need any additional lighting during the day because the pyramid allows the perfect amount of natural light into the room. At night, when natural lighting is no longer a viable option, this study area utilizes smaller and less powerful lamps to conserve energy. This serves to both create a calming study environment and cut back on the university's electricity use.
