The Army Library Program is supporting Hurricane Katrina Relief with the shipment of over 750 paperback book kits to evacuee and relief team locations on installations throughout DoD.  A team at the Fort Bragg Library moved boxes out of storage into staging areas for shipment to over 25 locations and arranged for FedEx pickup in just three working days after receiving the tasking.  Fort Polk Library in Louisiana is one of the recipients of these kits.  There are many evacuees at Fort Polk, and Monica King, Fort Polk Librarian, has been busy delivering paperback books to them and providing them Internet Access in her library.
