After Irene

Most libraries in the path of Irene closed for the weekend or reduced their hours.  Some of these libraries remained closed on Monday due to cleanup efforts or power outages.  Today, libraries seem to be operating under normal schedules except in areas that were hardest hit, such as eastern North Carolina, or areas that are experiencing power outages or flooding.  The Vermont Library Association is directing member libraries to the Disaster Assistance Hotline of the New England Document Conservation Center (978-470-1010).
