Earthquake Damaged Libraries Photographed in Japan

Japanese librarians and library patrons have been collecting photographs of earthquake-damaged libraries at this link.

Here’s a rough Google Translate version of the caption for the picture embedded above: “The Library Media Center immediately after the earthquake took the SFC. Even though this shake Fujisawa, Kanagawa. I fell and almost all books on the top bunk. Glad no people injured.”

If anyone knows of a library-focused charity in Japan, we will be happy to share the link.  If you want to help, the Authors for Japan site just launched yesterday, as writers and publishing professionals have donated some great prizes to raise funds for earthquake and tsunami relief in Japan. We also created a Twitter list of writers living in Japan.
