Hurricane Michael & Federal Depository Libraries

With the impending impact of Hurricane Michael, GPO stands ready to assist the Federal depository libraries in affected areas. We extend our concern and support to all libraries and personnel impacted by these unimaginable situations. We will be keeping track of libraries in areas that are affected by Michael and will monitor closings so that shipments can be suspended. Once libraries reopen, we will contact them to offer any assistance we can provide.

In the event of a natural or man-made disaster, when safe to do so, depository library staff are asked to inform their regional depository and GPO’s Office of Outreach and Support via This email address is being protected from spambots.

Our staff will be happy to consult with you about maintaining free public access to Government information, arranging for temporary address changes for depository deliveries, and more.

Here are some tips for assessing your collection for storm damage, once you are able to safely do so.
