American Library Association Establishes Haiti Relief Fund

This is a follow-up to the January 23, 2010 post entitled News About Haiti from International Federation of Library Associations.

The American Library Association has created a Haiti Library Relief Fund:
"The massive earthquake near the capital of Port-au-Prince in Haiti on January 12 and the loss and upheaval of life has touched everyone around the world. Unfortunately, natural disasters do not spare cultural institutions such as libraries and archives, or their staff." (...)

"Libraries and other cultural institutions are critical resources for the recovery of people around the world in the aftermath of a humanitarian crisis."

"This website provides information on how you can donate to help libraries and archives recover, as well as reports on damage to cultural institutions in Haiti, how to volunteer you expertise, and additional efforts of ALA and other organizations."
