Description

Hear University of Iowa library employee Dan Gall describe the ?bucket brigade? system he and other volunteers used to move fragile books from the basement of the UI Main Library to the safety of upper floors during the 2008 flood. He had conflicted emotions about the flood; while neighbors lost everything, his property suffered minimally. He reflects upon feeling both grateful and guilty for his fortunes.
