Improving Florida Public Library Utilization in Community Hurricane Response
The Information Institute at Florida State University was recently awarded a grant to study ways to reduce Florida hurricane risk by better utilizing public libraries. Institute Director Charles R. McClure notes, "Individual Florida public libraries have played important roles in helping their communities to better prepare and recover from hurricanes. This project will increase the capacity of all Florida public libraries to better help their communities respond to hurricanes."
