Library Under Water

You've heard about the freak storm battering Perth, Australia right? Well, it's freaky. And not only that, but the intrepid blogger/educator/reporter Kylie Sturgess is sharing video and pictures of the seriously water-damaged UWA library there. It's all on her PodBlack Cat blog.

I'm sure as soon as the worst is over they'll be needing donations. Just looking at those shelves in the upper left hand corner of the photo suffering from the deluge makes me cringe. According to Kylie, these are the books on education, art, and architecture.

What a loss.

Keep them in your thoughts and I'll keep you up to date when I hear more.

I have a sudden need to move all of my books off the bottom shelves. This is horrible.
