Laurel Public Library offering free services to residents affected by tornado

LAUREL, Del. –  In the wake of the storm that has left many in need, the Laurel County Public Library is stepping up to help. Over the next couple of days the library is offering a number of free services to those affected. Officials tell us if you’re filing a claim, you’ll be able to use their fax, scanning, or printing machines and other computer services free of charge. They also have hygiene stations that will be up and running for anyone who needs it.  Where people can brush their teeth, wash their hair, and more. Library officials say it’s critical to come together in times like these to make sure everyone is taken care of.

“We’re accessible to a lot of different people. So we feel like we’re in a perfect position to help and do whatever we can. And it’s kind of what we do here. Connect, create, inspire, is what we do. If our towns in need, if there’s an individual in need, that’s what we do,” said Laurel Public Library Director Gail Bruce.

Library officials also tell 47 that they will have free cups of coffee on hand for first responders, police officers, utility workers, and any else who may need a pick me up.
