> Louisiana State Librarian Rebecca Hamilton writes:
> "The New Orleans City Archives at the Main Library

> at a weird angle and made it look to staff
> like it was underwater but they are not. A company
> called Munter's has been hired by the library to
> remove them and get them out of New Orleans. They
> are safe. Someone broke some windows and was living
> in the library but they did not hurt anything. I am
> in tears I am so happy. NOPL's Geri Harris thought
> all was lost and we are all relieved to know that so
> much of Louisiana's history has been spared."
