MLA Statement on Hurricane Harvey
There are over 350,000 library employees working in over 100,000 libraries in the United States. Despite the size of our field, we are a tight-knit community, and I know we are all thinking of our colleagues in Texas and Louisiana and all those in the Gulf Coast Region who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey.
The Texas Library Association has set up a Disaster Relief Fund to directly assist libraries impacted by Hurricane Harvey. The Massachusetts Library Association encourages you to support this effort through donations or through the purchase of TLA coloring books, the proceeds from which will benefit the relief fund.
