Prepare for Weather Disasters

September is Disaster Preparedness Month and libraries can help your community get prepared. If your library is doing any programming, here are some links with good information, or just link to them from your library’s site:

  • The Heritage Preservation Task force recommends that you plan for any disaster and use these tips.
  • The federal government has information about what your patrons can do personally and for their family/friends.
  • The Heritage Preservation also offers this help on “Information on Major Disasters.”

For general resources to help at

Happy preparing,
Emily Sheketoff, Executive Director, ALA Washington Office
