Friends of Libraries USA (FOLUSA) is promoting its Friends in Need program for libraries affected by Katrina. FOLUSA will act as an intermediary for libraries requesting donations. (via Library Journal).
Upon receipt of the above and approval of the request, we will post your need on our site for three months (including one month on our front page). During that time, your library or group will interact directly with any library or group willing to help with donations.
We hope that having a centralized location to post requests for assistance in times of disaster will enable you to get help from your Friends from around the country!
