Call for Computers and Printers

UPDATE:
"The outpouring of support for our request for computers has been tremendous," Hamilton advises. "We nearly have what we need. Please put out the word that we have what we need in the way of computers and printers and people can focus on those other states that have been devastated. Tell everyone to pass on the word. We are working quickly to prepare the computers for our libraries. You all have saved the day!"
The State library of Louisiana has sent out this call for computer equipment. If you are interested and able to send computers, here is the request from the Louisiana State Librarian, Rebecca Hamilton.

To all-we are in desperate need of computers/printers. We are being inundated with evacuees needing to file FEMA applications, unemployment, search for loved ones, etc. and are coming into our public libraries to use the computers. Our libraries have greatly extended their hours to accommodate the people but they need additional computers and printers. If you can please put the word out that if anyone wants to help immediately, this is our greatest need."

Equipment Specs:
  • Pentium 3
  • Windows 2000, prefer XP
  • Laser printers if you can still get toner for them
Send equipment to:
State Library of Louisiana
701 North 4th Street
Baton Rouge, La. 70802-5232
If you are able to assist them, please let Rebecca know via email at rhamilton@crt.state.la.us to help her know what to expect.
