The View From Monday - September 11, 2017

It's Monday... again. Not the best Monday for many, many people. If you are inclined to help those affected by Hurricane Irma in the Caribbean, please check out the list compiled by author Tobias Buckell here. To help in the United States if you'd like, please check out Charity Navigator for Hurricane Irma here and Hurricane Harvey here.

The Texas Library Association has set up a Disaster Relief Fund to help Texas libraries affected by Harvey. Read more about that here.
