NYLA Distributes $9,000 in Disaster Relief Funds to Libraries Damaged by Flooding

Last week, representatives of NYLA, including President Matt Bollerman, Past-President Marcia Eggleston, Deputy Director Jeremy Johannesen and Michael J. Borges, Executive Director, visited nine libraries to hand deliver $1,000 checks to help them with their recovery efforts. The libraries visited were in varying degrees of restoration, with some already done with repairs and open for business, while others were still weeks or months away from reopening.

Everyone who contributed to our Disaster Relief Fund enabled NYLA to provide this financial assistance to libraries in need. The fundraising efforts demonstrated that when the library community acts in concert we can make a difference.

See the list of libraries that received financial assistance or make a contribution to the Disaster Relief Fund.

Happy Holidays and thanks again for your support!
