Updates on Libraries and Staff Members Affected by Hurricane Katrina

Click here for updates from the American Library Association concerning libraries in the Gulf Coast impacted by Hurricane Katrina.

ALA also notes that they are "monitoring the situation in New Orleans as it relates to planning for the ALA Annual Conference scheduled for June 22-28, 2006."

I also want to mention that I'm proud, but not surprised, that so many staff members and libraries have offered donations or services for the relief effort. Especially notable is Geaux Library Recovery, a "means to solicit and recruit a means for information professionals from around the country to network and volunteer to help with library and archive recovery and clean-up and to help information professionals and their families recover."
