Hale Library FAQ

Operations, services, and information about the Libraries during fire recovery.


We are extremely grateful for the outpouring of support that has been offered since the fire. At this time, Belfor, a property restoration company, is handling all disaster recovery efforts with the support of key library and IT staff. If volunteer opportunities come available we will update this page with information.

We are working with insurance adjusters to assess the damage, but we anticipate there will be additional needs beyond what insurance covers in order to make a full recovery. It is our vision that we bring Hale Library back even better than before.

If you wish to make a financial contribution, a fund has been set up with the KSU Foundation to support Libraries and IT recovery. Donations can be made at https://give.evertrue.com/ksu/help-for-hale
