This is from the Pikes Peak Library District

We have set up a mobile Laptop Lab at the Red Cross Shelter at The Southeast YMCA (in addition to the lab already set up at the Cheyenne Mountain High School shelter) for evacuees of the Waldo Canyon Fire. Clifton Medford, IT Technician at PPLD, said the Library plans to have the laptops available at the shelters until they close.

“My hope is to be here until everything is cleared,” he said.

The Library has also donated approximately 100 books at each location for evacuees to keep from materials that were recently weeded from the collection, with a good balance of materials for children and adults.

In addition, PPLD is dedicating public service staff to help evacuees register on the Red Cross Safe and Well website.

PPLD will continue to provide support at community shelters until the fire is contained. For additional information on the Waldo Canyon Fire, along with a live webcam from East Library, visit
