Help Community College Libraries Hit by Katrina


Through the American Library Association Adopt-a-Library Program, the Dallas County Community College Libraries have adopted Delgado Community College in New Orleans and SOWELA Technical Community College in Lake Charles, La., to help rebuild their library collections after the damage done by the hurricanes. Both libraries suffered extensive damage to their book and journal collections. Although funds for building repairs have been made available, there are no funds for materials.

Please donate to this relief effort - a few dollars from each of us would go a long way.

Donations may be made at:

  • Cedar Valley College - Cashier's Office
  • El Centro College (main campus) - Cashier's Office
  • Bill Priest campus of El Centro College - Business Office

If you donate at Cedar Valley or El Centro's main campus, you'll receive a "thank you" bookmark.

Stop by the El Centro Library foyer to see pictures of the damage to these libraries.
