Books for New Orleans

Getting the urge to do a bit of spring cleaning? Watertiger had this on her blog yesterday:
In an effort to restock its shelves after Hurricane Katrina, the New Orleans Public Library is asking for donations of hardcovers and paperbacks for people of all ages. Library staff will decide which books should go into its collection; the rest will go to destitute families or be sold to raise funds for the library.

Please send books to: Rica A. Trigs, Public Relations, New Orleans Public Library, 219 Loyola Ave., New Orleans, LA, 70112.

Apparently, if donors mention to the Postal Service that the books are for the library in New Orleans, they will be able to send the books at the library rate, which is slightly less than the book rate.
Help them out if you can!

ADDENDUM: Apparently, the response to this has been overwhelming. Before sending anything, check out these FAQ.

And now for something completely different: a double Daily Dose of Durst:

Hindu priests who look after the memorial of Mahatma Gandhi had to conduct a purification ceremony after a visit from President Bush. They claim it wasn’t his fault but rather the sniffer dogs who accompany him, but we all know how polite the Indian people are.

Hope President Bush had fun in India. Visiting our old jobs.
