Porterville Library burnt

I just learned about the horrific fire at the Porterville Public Library in California on Feb 18, 2020. All the books were lost. Two local firefighters, Raymond Figueroa, 35, and Patrick Jones, 25, lost their lives making sure no innocents were trapped inside the burning building.

Author Anna Lee Huber has started an online campaign on her website to rebuild the library. She is asking for book donations. You can find the details here. 

I would like to spread the word. Let’s help Porterville restock their library.

  1. Two firemen died – that is so sad.

  2. I am so very sorry. Libraries are treasures. I mourn for the firefighters and their families too.

  3. Tragic that people lost their lives. Books don’t stand a chance against a fire.
