Kentucky Librarians affected by Tornado

Friends – Please see below the message from FOKL President Wayne Onkst :
I spoke to Terry Manuel at the KDLA yesterday and he told us that no public libraries were damaged in the storms! Some of the libraries still have no power or internet service, but the structural damage was minimal.
Unfortunately there are at least 8 library staff members who lost their homes and one staff member lost their father as a result of the storms.
Lonormi Manuel (Terry’s wife) has set up a fund to support those library employees who lost their homes. If you are interested you can find more information here:

We will have more information when we meet on January 12 so we can decide if additional support in some way is needed.
Wayne
