The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the entire globe in a historic way. The killing of George Floyd has sparked protests in our community, nation, and around the world as well as demands for police reform and restructuring to combat systemic racism in society. Both of these events serve as the inspiration to collect the history of our community during this time for use by future researchers. The Hudson Area Library History Room Committee invites you to submit images (photos, artwork), videos, and words (poems, stories, journal entries, personal essays) that help to document the personal experiences of our community in 2020.
Those wishing to contribute to the archive can submit work through the library’s website by following the link “Community Archiving of Local History” found underneath the main banner on the home page or by clicking here. If you are contributing works as physical items rather than digital submissions, please also submit using the form on the website to schedule your drop-off. In keeping with the mission of the Hudson Area Library’s History Room, we request that all submissions be either from individuals who live in the library’s service area – Hudson, Greenport and Stockport – or that feature these areas as the main subject.
