Walker, Julie
Knowledge Quest, v40 n5 p70-75 May-Jun 2012
In 2005, a record breaking 26 named tropical storms including 13 hurricanes ravaged the Gulf Coast of the United States. In response to the devastation of hundreds of schools, the Laura Bush Foundation swiftly created The Gulf Coast School Library Recovery Initiative to help school libraries become fully functional and to offer the needed print resources to the students of the schools that were destroyed or severely damaged. The rapid response efforts of the initiative played a huge role in the emotional recovery of students and school staff. This article presents an interview with Mrs. Laura Bush, the former First Lady of the United States. In the interview, Mrs. Bush discusses the caring power of the Gulf Coast School Library Recovery Initiative.
