Author Shiloh Walker to host book drive for Louisville (KY) Free Public Library

Louisville (KY) Free Public Library Hit by Flash Flood on Aug. 4, 2009; Damage at Least $1 million.

A recovery fund has been established. Donations can be sent to:

The Library Foundation
301 York Street
Louisville, KY 40203

Author Shiloh Walker is helping the effort by organizing a book drive for the library. She is asking everyone including authors and publishers to donate both signed and unsigned books. All genres, from children’s books to romance to non-fiction, etc, etc.

"Signed books can be used in fundraiser purposes. Unsigned books can be used to help replenish the books that were lost due to the flood," Shiloh said in her blog.

She said that the library doesn't have a place to store the books yet, but she is close by and willing to hold on to them until the building repairs are complete. For more information on how you can help check out Shiloh's blog.
