Horrible news. I wrote the library contact. Wouldn't it be great if LT members could help them catalog their new library?

That's horrid! More than happy to pitch in with cataloguing anything that doesn't require physical proximity to library (being in the UK....) if there's data input of some kind to be done online.. Unfortunately, physically not close enough to touch books!

Well, the UK is closer to Swan's Island than much of the US... :)

Oh, that's dreadful! The really sad part is that so much of the historical material they had is irreplaceable.

If there is stuff those of us not in physical proximity to the library can do to help with the cataloguing, please let us know.

Something I read said that their former collection was mostly donated, so they will probably do that again. I'd love to have them put their "wish list" on LT.

I'm late to this thread. How horrible. Yes, Tim, a wishlist would be a great idea. Do you have anything further on this?
