We heard about this at AASL in Chicago and it came to the AASL list today so
I thought I'd share it.

Subject: [AASLFORUM:2027] Possible disaster relief funding for school

ALA/AASL has been contacted by a funder who is interested in setting up a
fund for school libraries that have been damaged or destroyed by a natural
or man-made disaster.  As part of the exploration, the NEA Foundation has
volunteered to set up a meeting between their staff, our staff, the funder
and AASL member librarians who have been involved in such a disaster.  These
events could include tornados, hurricanes, flooding, fire, vandalism,
earthquakes, mold, ???

Please send me contact information (including SUMMER phone and email) of any
members you know or can find having personal experience in a school
library's disaster and recovery and who would be willing to join a convening
and share their experise.

Please forward names ASAP.  Thanks!
