The Coshocton Public Library would like to encourage Coshocton County residents of all ages to write down their thoughts, feelings, and experiences during these days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our library has a wonderful Local History Room and we would like to create a collection (once we get back in the building!) of written reflections on this important historical moment. Instructions for contributing journal entries to the library will come later. For now, just start writing to create a valuable resource for future generations.
Teens, create a work of art that simply expresses how you perceive INDEPENDENCE and submit it to email@example.com by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30th to be eligible to win a prize and have your work displayed on the Coshocton Public Library System’s Facebook page.
Please enjoy this list of virtual programs and resources for children, teens, and adults. This list will be regularly updated as we work to find creative ways to provide the community with library services.
