On this blog, I try to pass along information that I run across about libraries that are recovering or rebuilding after an emergency situation. I know that none of us are in a position to give to every institution in need, but if you're able, remember that even a small donation, when combined with other small donations, can make a huge contribution.
Damage done by the tornado in Henryville, IN earlier this month included extensive damage to the school complex and the school libraries. Efforts are currently underway to rebuild the library collections, and donations are being collected by the neighboring Greater Clark County Schools.
If you would like to make a donation to help, please make your check payable to the GCCS Educational Foundation and reference "Henryville Libraries" in the memo section. Send your donation to Erin Bojorquez, GCCS Educational Foundation, 2112 Utica-Sellersburg Road, Jeffersonville, IN 47130.
(Note: The informational flyer references both book donations and monetary donations. But typically in a rebuilding situation, a monetary donation is best. This prevents duplicate materials and storage issues.)
