From the catalogs of babes











{August 5, 2009}   In which I am reminded that there are other libraries a lot worse off…

For those that haven’t heard, the Louisville Free Public Library (home of Greg Schwartz, creator and host of the Uncontrolled Vocabulary podcast) suffered serious and irreparable damage due to flash flooding.

While all stories like this break my heart, the flood following so closely on the heels of the Libraries Are Free But Books Aren’t book drive really hurts.

If you have a bit to spare, please consider helping out. A disaster recovery fund has been established; you can mail a check to:
The Library Foundation
301 York Street
Louisville, KY 40203

Or you can pay into a collection organized by Steve Lawson.

I may get upset about the dysfunctionality of our catalog, but at least ours isn’t served on a computer buried under 4 feet of water.
