As part of the Katrina relief effort, the Maryland Library Association has adopted the Pearlington Library in Hancock County, Miss.

More than 20 feet of water washed through the building during the hurricane. Although the building withstood the onslaught, the library lost everything.

The Pearlington Library was a combination school and public library and was housed in the elementary school. Immediately following the storm, the library building served as a temporary shelter for those area residents who were left homeless by the hurricane. Donations are helping the library to rebuild its collection of materials and books.
