The ground floor of the Gulfport Library is little more than a series of support columns, but librarians still hope that patrons will have the possibility of returning borrowed books (without late charges of course).
"If they can get them in a book drop, that's wonderful," said Prima Plauche, director of the Hancock County Library System. "Or, keep them until we're fully functional. We need them back and would appreciate getting them back."
Of immediate importance of course, is clean-up, and efforts in that area are underway in Gulport, Pass Christian and Biloxi. Friends, along with local authors such as John Grisham are helping to collect funds for rebuilding. More, including photos of the Gulport Library, from the Clarion Ledger .
