Everyone has been deeply moved by the recent tragedy in Haiti, and the way that communities throughout the world have banded together for relief efforts is truly inspiring. Recently, our colleague Holly over in the Teen Department blogged for CLP Teensburgh about ways to help, and provided a short list of further readings on Haiti. I highly recommend checking out her informative blog post if you’re interested in learning ways that you can contribrute to the relief effort.
In the meantime, if the recent news stories on Haiti have made you eager to learn more about the country, be sure to check out some of our collections on the subject. Our books on Haiti range from histories of the country, to folklore, to music, to fiction.
