Support for the Butte County Library Staff affected by the Camp Fire

ByWater Solutions, an open source community contributor and America’s forefront provider of Koha support, has set up a GoFundMe page to help library staff affected by the Camp Fires in the Butte County Library System. ByWater has also contributed 10% of the total goal to help with this cause.

All funds collected will go to directly to the members of the Butte County Library System who have lost their homes in the fires that ravaged the area this month. For more information and to make a donation to help these librarians please visit:

Nate Curulla, Owner/CRO of ByWater commented on this initiative:

We really want to address the needs of the individuals in our partner library rather than just the structures damaged by the fires. People are the most important part of our library community and this kind of loss is devastating and life-altering for those affected.
