Coshocton Public Library COVID-19 Journal Project: Do you keep a personal journal? Or have you always wanted to? Now is the perfect time to give it a try! Journals are a great way to capture the important moments of your life, as well as the important moments in our collective history. 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. Click here for some prompts to help you begin to tell your story.
