The ALA Ukraine Library Relief Fund Is Collecting Donations

ALA teamed up with the Ukraine Library Association to create the ALA Ukraine Library Relief Fund, which will “gather donations for the Ukrainian library community as they face the challenges of war.” The money will go toward purchasing computers and software, fixing immediate issues such as glazing windows and repairing bomb-damaged roofs of libraries, and helping support library workers who are in danger, wounded, or displaced.

The press release notes, “In cities and towns throughout Ukraine, dozens of libraries have been severely damaged or destroyed. Librarians have kept libraries open for as long as possible and are improvising to bring services to people. … In addition to the destruction and damage of libraries in the war zones, there are significant challenges serving people displaced by the fighting. Libraries do not have enough computers for displaced people to use to communicate with relatives or for job seeking, online learning and more.”

For more information, read the press release.
