Louisiana Rebirth Plan Involves State Library

By LJ Staff

The Louisiana Rebirth plan launched by Lt. Gov. Mitch Landrieu and Department of Culture, Recreation, and Tourism Secretary Angèle Davis includes an important role for the State Library of Louisiana: "The State Library will serve as a clearing house, offering people a gateway to information that will put them in contact with the resources available to rebuild their lives." Among other parts of the plan: the Louisiana Cultural Economy Foundation will receive and distribute relief funds and the Louisiana Serve Commission will aim to double the role of AmeriCorps youth in rebuilding projects.
