Katrina and New Orleans Libraries

Imagine having no access to books or libraries... or internet. The folks in New Orleans know the deal, especially since Katrina hit in August.

Found this story in Library Journal, which shares among other things that 90% of the librarian staff in New Orleans has been let go... and only two libraries may open in upcoming weeks. Still a lot of work to do...

Thanks for posting this shocking news. I mentioned it at our program tonight, a fundraiser for ALA's Hurricane Relief program
