Iowa Genealogical Society Library: Volunteers Scramble To Save Genealogy Books
The collapse happened during the first major blizzard of winter, officials said. The library at 628 East Grand Avenue in Des Moines suffered extensive damage.

Officials said volunteers worked to cover books and equipment, including protecting "endangering irreplaceable family history volumes."
