Augusta Library launches COVID-19 Community Documentation Project
Friday, May 1, 2020
AUGUSTA, GA. (WRDW/WAGT) -- The Augusta Library System is asking the community to share their impressions and experiences of how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected and changed their lives.
The type of information the system is seeking are:
- written documentation
- personal stories
- photographs (images)
- audio recordings
- and video clips
These will be collected into an archive chronicling the pandemic in the CSRA so future generations can look back and better understand this period.
The system is particularly interested in the stories of first responders, medical professionals, hospitality workers, small business owners, military, and students.
For those who would like to particpate in the project, visit the website of
