    Are the ccl libraries open or closed? Why don’t u have a notice on your main website?

    I think all libraries are closed today, but I don’t know what the long term plan is. I imagine there will be quite a mess!

    Hope that you haven’t lost anything too significant to the quake. Stay safe and well during the cleanup. *hugs*

    Is there any help you would like from library workers elsewhere?
