DETROIT, MI – Detroit's Public Library’s Mobile Library has a stops schedule to provide internet access for flood-damaged neighborhoods. Due to the June 25-26 flooding, Detroit's people need to file claims for damage relief to their residence or business.

The Mobile Library will provide flood-related resources. The Mobile Library will also provide online access to forms from the Detroit Water and Sewage Department (DWSD), Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA), and FEMA.

The citizens will be assisted by library staff to access the application forms and submit them online by August 10, 2021, for DWSD. For more information and questions about the forms or application process, people are encouraged to directly call DWSD or FEMA.
