Biblioteca Italiana water damages update December 12th
The Biblioteca Italiana Seattle (BIS), housed at Casa Italiana, suffered significant water damage on 29 June 2022. We estimate approximately 400 books were damaged beyond repair and had to be discarded. The remaining books have been dried and packed into boxes. The library room has been repaired and we expect to begin moving the books back in January.
We had decent responses from questionnaires sent to members and interviews conducted with external key individuals. This information will be used to prepare a Strategic Plan that will be available to help the 2023 Board of Directors.

We need volunteers for the Board of Directors who are able to start in January 2023. The positions open include the President. Those members interested should contact email@example.com.
