How Libraries Made Out

The American Library Association has a page of Katrina News detailing how AL, MS, and LA libraries fared and what libraries elsewhere are doing to help. One of the biggest needs right now is computers. There are an awful lot of people out there looking for news of relatives. It will be a long time before the damage is known for sure, but several libraries were completely destoyed, and it looks like the NO Public Library lost its entire Archives section to flooding.

If there are evacuees in your area, please do whatever you can to provide them with reading material, games, puzzles, etc. Also, check with your local public library. If they are not already providing service to evacuees, encourage them to do so.
