Volunteers needed at Czech Village, New Bohemia neighborhoods

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Volunteers are needed in the Czech Village and New Bohemia neighborhoods.

At 9:00 a.m. Friday morning, trailers will arrive in each neighborhood so business owners can remove items from their buildings.

Additional sandbagging efforts will continue to take place on 11th Avenue SE next to the NewBo City Market.

The National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library (NCSML) is preparing for flooding next week. The main building, artifacts, and library collections are in no immediate danger due to flood protection measures put in place after the 2008 floods.

The exhibits are not at risk, but the garage is. The museum also owns several buildings in the Czech Village. Sandbagging will take place at 1:00 p.m. Friday afternoon.
