Thank you, Charles, for posting this information.  I just wanted to add, for those who may not be aware, that the Josephine Community Library system currently receives no local tax support and survives solely on donations and grants.  Essentially, they are a small nonprofit, so an unanticipated $5,000 demand on their budget is a huge deal.  

I encourage anyone who is so moved to make a  donation to assist in the restoration of the Illinois Valley branch library as I know the support of the Oregon library community will mean a great deal to the library staff and volunteers in Josephine County.  Let’s share some library love!

Subject:  [Libs-Or] Illinois Valley Branch Library Restoration Fundraiser

On the morning of Tuesday, February 23, 2016, robbers broke in to the Illinois Valley branch of Josephine County Libraries in Cave Junction, Oregon, ransacked the building, and stole cash and other items. Although the building is covered by insurance, the library still needs to pay the deductible and costs not covered by insurance. Costs for damages and repairs are estimated at $5,000. For more information about the incident and how to donate to the cause, please see:
