Help Hancock County Libraries
Hancock County Library System was ground zero for Hurricane
Katrina. After Hurricane Camille in 1969 Cookeville Mayor
Chuck Womack did volunteer work in Bay St. Louis, Hancock
County, Ms., as a young Tulane medical student. When Katrina
hit in August 2005, Mayor Womack coordinated the adoption
of Bay St. Louis and Waveland, Ms. by the City of Cookeville
and spear-headed fund-raising efforts to help with the Hancock
County recovery efforts. On September 19, 2005 the Putnam
County Library successfully held a Tellabration International
Night of Storytelling event to raise money for the Hancock
County Libraries. Hancock County is moving toward recovery,
with our help.
