The library in Ferguson, Missouri, which stayed open as an ad hoc school after the grand jury decision not to indict an officer over the shooting of an unarmed teenager prompted rioting and school closures earlier this week, has been overwhelmed by donations, raising raising more than $175,000 in less than two days. The Guardian

Update: As of Dec 15, the total donations now top $350,000.

"It means we can do a whole lot more programming that's focused on the community, [and] long overdue updates to the library. We have infrastructure needs that should have been taken care of 10 years ago. But what I really hope I can do is to get a full-time children's or programming librarian," Bonner says. NPR
