Earthquake Damage to Libraries in Japan

As with other disasters, each day we will find new ways in which we all are affected that hadn't occurred to us while we were focused on saving lives. The circles of pain are going to radiate and go on for a long time.

Boing Boing posted a link to pictures of libraries damaged during the earthquake. Remember that there have been hundreds of aftershocks, some of which are quite strong. The pictures vary from a few books on the floor to stack aisles blocked by books to twisted empty shelving and damaged buildings. You can click on the pictures to enlarge them. Considering the devastation in Japan, it's not time to talk about the libraries lost in the tsunami.
