Recovery Begins

The scenes of devastation, desolation and destruction in the areas of Texas most affected by Hurricane Harvey are heart rending. It is impossible to comprehend the suffering and loss that hundreds of thousands of people are experiencing. We find hope, however, in the images of heroic rescues, towering stacks of donated goods, lines of volunteers at shelters, and stories of people from all walks of life coming together to help.

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.
