We Seek Your Stories for Archival Project

The Cedar Rapids Public Library is seeking stories from the community on how they are being impacted by the Coronavirus or COVID-19.

“Libraries are places where stories are kept and shared,” said Dara Schmidt, Library Director. “In this new chapter in our history the Cedar Rapids Public Library wants to be sure we are gathering the stories of our community so that we have a historical record we are calling CR Strong.”

Community members are invited to share their stories through an online form. Tell us how the Coronavirus or COVID-19 is impacting your family, your workplace, and your neighborhood. Stories can be submitted in written form (800 words or less), images, sound recording, or video (5 minutes or less).

“Cedar Rapids has endured through so much in the past, we know we will get through this together,” said Schmidt. “Right now we are asking you to help us capture the story of how Cedar Rapids was impacted and how we endured during a global pandemic.”
