Longview 150 Stories by the Longview Public Library
As Longview prepares for it’s 150th celebration, the library staff are interested in hearing from citizens what it was like to grow up in Longview and how Longview has been shaped by certain historical and cultural events.
All of the memories will be audio recorded and played on the Library’s Podcast, “Longview 150 Stories,” all throughout January to May 2020.
Moreover, each audio file will be permanently saved on the Library’s Digital Archive. Every citizen will have a chance to preserve a piece of Longview history!
