Gleeson Library Fine Payments to be Donated to the People of Haiti

To the people of Haiti, we say clearly, and with conviction, you will not be forsaken; you will not be forgotten. In this, your hour of greatest need, America stands with you. The world stands with you. We know that you are a strong and resilient people. You have endured a history of slavery and struggle, of natural disaster and recovery. And through it all, your spirit has been unbroken and your faith has been unwavering. So today, you must know that help is arriving — much, much more help is on the way.

– President Barack Obama, January 2010

If you pay a library fine online or in person through Friday, February 12th, Gleeson Library will donate 100% of your payment to the people of Haiti (via Jesuit Refugee Service:  http://www.jrsusa.org/).

If you don’t have  library fines to pay, but would still like to contribute,  monetary donations for the JRS’s work in Haiti will also be accepted at the Library’s Access Services desk.
