Shiloh Walker was very generous when I did a fundraiser for Sharon Cullars earlier this year. Flooding has hit her local library in Louisville hard, doing more than $5 million dollars in damage. If you’re a regular reader of this blog you know I’m passionate about libraries. I truly believe they literally saved my life. The updated information is per her request.
On August 4, heavy rains caused flooding in Louisville, Kentucky and the surrounding areas. TheLouisville Free Public Library’s main branch was hit hard and the damages are estimated at $1 million $5 million. (per the Courier Journal on 8/6/09)
I’m putting to a book drive in effort to help.
How you can help:
Donations of new books, all genres.
Information about monetary donations can be found at WFPL.
Authors & Publishers:
Donations of both signed and unsigned books. All genres, from children’s books to romance to non-fiction, etc, etc.
Signed books can be used in fundraiser purposes. Unsigned books can be used to help replenish the books that were lost due to the flood.
Flooding at Louisville Free Public Library
I have spoken with somebody with the library and at this time, they have no place to store books. However, I’m close and I will keep the books at my house until they are able to take them.
