Dewey Donate? Yes, We Should!

News article on the Dewey Donate site, which is collecting donations for the Harrison County Library System. The system is located in Mississippi and was hit by Hurricane Katrina, who very meanly put several libraries' collections under water and mud. (As of this writing, the system's web site contained a picture of their bookmobile with what looks to be a pole through the front windshield.) Check out the donors map, made courtesy of Frappr. Choose from 8 different libraries' Amazon wish lists and away you go... a warm fuzzy for helping libraries in dire need. Publishers should step up to the plate, too, and donate reference materials to those collections damaged by the hurricane.
