New Orleans Public Library Wish List at Alibris

I found this on the Librarian 2 blog: New Orleans Public Library has set up a wish list through the online book vendor Alibris, to help channel people’s desire to help them rebuild in more productive ways than sending them all kinds of random, falling-apart, donated books that NOPL has no need for anyway. NOPL suffered about $18 million in damages from Hurricane Katrina. This wish list lets you help them by purchasing one or as many books as you choose to help them rebuild.?Ǭ† Other, related information is available on the NOPL website.
