Baton Rouge School Library Destroyed in Historic Floods

From “Book Riot: This Week In Books” email newsletter:

There are many heart-breaking, jaw-dropping stories coming out of Louisiana in the wake of recent destructive flooding there. As is often the case in these kinds of situations, there is destruction of many kinds and help needed in many ways.

Glen Oaks Elementary lost its entire library collection. The school librarian there, Trey Veazy, is asking for donations to help refill the shelves for the new school year. Theyโ€™ve set up an Amazon wishlist and are open to receiving mailed books as well:

Glen Oaks Park Elementary School
Attn: Trey Veazey
2401 72nd Avenue
Baton Rouge, LA 70807

This story broke my heart. Please help in any way you can, folks!
