Readers, you may have heard about the flash flooding in Louisville, KY on Tuesday which has caused major damage to the Louisville Free Public Library. Thankfully we fared much better in Lexington, but we are all doing what we can to help this library in need. One of my colleagues here in Lexington describes the situation in more detail.
As cleanup efforts begin, we are learning more about the extent of the damage across Louisville. The local paper today reports that a number of artifacts in the Kentucky Derby Museum are threatened by mold.
It's an awful mess. If you would like to help the Louisville Free Public Library, you can send contributions to:
