One moment please...
COVID-19 Impact Questionnaire

We are living in a historic moment.  In the same way that, today, we want to know how Alabamians experienced daily life and survived wars, years from now, others will want to know how we navigated the experience of a global pandemic brought on by Covid-19.  

In an effort to document this moment in history, the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library Special Collections wants to collect and preserve the experiences and reactions of citizens in North Alabama.
