Librarians everywhere want to help libraries and library workers affected by Katrina. Aside from giving money or helping with local needs, if you are hosting evacuees,
there's not much to be done yet. As people get back into their libraries, the needs will be identified and that's when the work will start. If you have books to donate, The Texas Library Association, in addition to taking donations for a relief fund, has set up a distribution plan for receipt and distribution of books to libraries in need. We hope to have word of similar set-ups in other states.
TLA has also partnered with the Texas Association of Mini Storage to accept recent issue books that are new or in good condition for shipment to the affected states at an appropriate time.
