Clean Air Repository

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Goal: to provide information to the public to educate the residents of Granite City, Mitchell, and Pontoon Beach on the hazards of various pollutants created by nearby industries.

The Clean Air Repository provides resources concerning air permits and various agencies involved in such permits.

Print materials are available through either library location.  Some subject terms to use in identifying materials include: clean air, air pollution, emissions, particle pollution, and others.  A research librarian is usually on duty and happy to help you in your search.  Additionally, the Six Mile Regional Library District is a member of SHARE, an online consortium of more than 450 libraries located in Southern Illinois; if we don’t have it, we can get it for you.  As a bonus, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s library is also a member of SHARE.  To search the library’s online catalog:
