Hurricane Irma Caribbean Recovery, Relief, and Rebuild Initiative
September 15th, 2017 as of 3:00pm
Please help us support our Caribbean community. We are working to help our Caribbean community recover from the devastating impact of Hurricane Irma. We have been using every means necessary to communicate and relay information quickly with those affected in the Caribbean as well as those willing to contribute and extend their support.
As of this moment we have received urgent needs lists from Sint Maarten Philipsburg Jubilee Library and from the National Library of Antigua and Barbuda. The American Library Association (ALA) is partnering with us to help expedite relief efforts. More information and details are forthcoming. We will be creating a centralized resource to help keep track of information and resources as they become available. We will also be using our social media accounts to quickly distribute communications since Facebook and WhatsApp have been working in the affected Caribbean region.
Our Official handle for Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram is: @dLOCaribbean
If you would like to help or provide support please contact me via phone to (305) 348-3008 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
