Rebuilding Libraries Affected by 2017 Natural DisastersDonate Today How to Apply
After Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, the Laura Bush Foundation for America’s Libraries awarded grants of $10,000 to $75,000 to school libraries whose collections were damaged or destroyed in the hurricanes. This year, after the devastation we have seen from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria as well the California wildfires, we are again going to dedicate our resources to disaster-affected schools to rebuild their book collections.
