Yap Public Library Thanks HLA at PIALA 2008



While attending the PIALA (Pacific Islands Association of Libraries and Archives) in Yap last year, I was able to present a check on behalf of HLA to Isabel Rungard, Head Librarian of the Yap Public Library, that would go towards rebuilding and replenish materials the library on the small island. Its library was completely destroyed in the tsunami that caused a disaster in Southeast Asia several years ago.


Here is the thank-you card that we received from Isabel. She was tremendously grateful for the generosity of HLA and expressed her thanks to me many times. It was a pleasure to be there and we were treated with extreme generosity the whole time.
