On Tuesday the Louisville Free Public Library was hit by a flash flood caused by a storm that dropped 7 inches of rain in 75 minutes. Damages are estimated at $5 million, their servers, bookmobiles, offices, processing room and more were covered by 6 feet of water.
How can you help? The easiest way to is to head over to Steve Lawson’s blog and donate via PayPal (he’ll write a check to the Foundation on September 1st) his goal is $5,000 and every little bit helps, donate what you can. (I think Steve is a trustworthy guy and so do a lot of other people) You could even win a prize by letting Abigail or Jambina know you donated.
