Libraries in Need
Here is an important post from Cynthia Leitich Smith regarding libraries in Texas in need:
As I'm sure most of you know, the Texas coast (and some of its libraries) took quite a beating this past year.
The Rosenberg Library in Galveston has been hit especially hard: http://rosenberg-library.org/
Take a Chance on Art: purchase one or more $5 raffle tickets to enter to win illustrator Don Tate's painting "Duke Ellington," (the image is above) and support the Texas Library Association Disaster Relief Fund. Note: it's especially important this year in light of devastation caused by Hurricane Ike. To learn more, read interviews with TLA librarian Jeanette Larson and illustrator Don Tate.
