Helping Texas Libraries Respond to Hurricane Harvey



From the Texas Library Association

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the Texas Library Association and Texas State Library and Archives Commission are working together to coordinate a response to damage caused to libraries and archives across the Houston and gulf coast region. We share a deep concern for the condition of facilities and collections, and for the wellbeing of staffs of libraries and archives in the area. We are also very appreciative of the many offers of help that are coming in from across the state and nation.

The American Library Association is encouraging librarians to assist their colleagues in Texas with recovery efforts by by donating online to the TLA Disaster Relief Fund purchasing the TLA Coloring Book benefiting the Disaster Relief Fund. The ALA offers a list of resources for dealing with natural disasters at Libraries Respond.
