We are living through a historic moment in time and the Kingsport Public Library and Archives wants to capture, document, and preserve your stories and memories about life during the COVID-19 Pandemic. History is normally associated with the past but we are making and living history right now! Information collected now will become crucial to the archives in the future. Your contributions will help build a resource of primary documentation so future generations can understand the history we are now living. Let’s document life in Kingsport and add our story to this global historic event. This link will launch a Google form that you can use to submit your story.
Every 10 years, the @uscensusbureau undertakes a mammoth task: counting all the people residing in the United States. This count affects the allocation of funding for our community’s public resources (e.g., roads, hospitals, schools), how we plan for the future, and our voice in government. We are happy to help you access the website to fill out the census. Check out our tutorial and give us a call if you need help. Learn more about the importance of the #2020Census and how to participate: 2020census.gov.
