With devastating flooding hitting many communities in eastern Kentucky, many libraries and schools lost all of their books to the storms, and with school just gearing up it was more than a need in the community.

“The Tourism Director in Murray, Kentucky, Erin Carrico, was made aware that Letcher County lost several schools during the flooding in Eastern Kentucky,” Tricia Noel, Executive Director for Hopkins County Tourist & Convention Commission said. “ Our state association, Kentucky Association of Convention & Visitor Bureaus, was scheduled to meet in Murray this week, so she sent a notice to the group requesting that we bring a couple of books to the meeting and we would send back to Eastern KY with our fellow counterparts from that end of the state.”
