Library helps Texas tornado victims find photos -Times Record News
"...The Lake Arlington Branch Library has collected more than 800 photos — and counting — strewn about by the April 3 tornadoes that destroyed or damaged roughly 1,300 homes and businesses, according to the state. About three-fourths of the photos have been claimed so far, said Debi Wood, library services manager.
"It feels like we're keeping people's memories for them," Wood said.
More than 40 people have brought in photos so far, and Wood said she expects more. Atwood and Woodland West Church of Christ volunteers cleaned, dried and sorted the photos and a few documents.
There's a photo of a woman at a party dressed as Winnie the Pooh. A poem dedicated to the loving memory of Grandma Mary Garner. Vacation photos. A boy and a girl and a donkey. Birthday parties. Posed school pictures. A baby smiling in a bathtub. A man in a red flannel shirt and his pug in front of a Christmas tree. All moments frozen in time."
