"The speed and severity of the storm caught many by total surprise. In the meantime, libraries all across the storm-ravaged region that managed to avoid power disruptions provided the services that are part of their normal day-to-day operation. On any given day throughout the year, libraries provide information resources needed to help improve the lives of the community members they serve. As often happens during a crisis, many more people than usual came to appreciate the value of these community anchors"
