Students from Michelle McDaniel's class at Polo Road Elementary School in Columbia, South Carolina, heard about the multiple tornadoes that came through our state in May and sympathized with the Oklahomans affected.
To show their support, they wrote cards expressing their well wishes, safety tips, and positivity about the future. The photo to the left is just an example of one of the many thoughtful cards written by the Polo Road Elementary School children.

We watched in terror as the tornado made its way along the path one mile south of the Southwest Oklahoma City Library and about a block south of the Moore Public Library where 54 people were sheltering from the storm. We were so relieved when they were passed, but others were not so fortunate.
In addition, our friend and Board Member Steve Eddy is City Manager of the City of Moore and our hearts break for him and for his wife who is Director of the Red Cross as we think of all they are seeing and dealing with.
At this time I don’t know how we can help, but I will keep you informed as we learn more. Late last night the power was out in Blanchard, SOKC and Moore libraries. Those staff members should check with their supervisors as we determine plans for them and their libraries. All other libraries should be open and staff reporting normally. I’m sure many customers will need our services.
If you have information about other Pioneer staff members affected by the tornado, please let me know. We recognize that many of our customers were affected, also, and will want to know how we can help.
Anne Masters, Director of the Pioneer Library System
