Music helps Cedar Rapids Library

Posted:

Cedar Rapids (KWWL) -- A little shimmying and shaking will help rebuild the Cedar Rapids Library.

A jazz concert was part of the boogie for books at the new Bottle Works Condos in downtown Cedar Rapids. $40r tickets for food, drinks, and music will go towards rebuilding the Cedar Rapids Library severely damaged by the floods of 2008.

"The library was just devasted by the floods. In fact, this was the single largest library disaster in history."

The flood destroyed almost 200,000 books in the library's collection.
