Derecho Project

Marion Public Library Seeking Student Input About Derecho

The Marion Derecho Oral History Project conducted by the Marion Public Library will document the stories of individuals in Marion during the August 10, 2020 derecho that struck the state of Iowa. We hope to preserve a diversity of voices and experiences by recording their stories, collecting photographs and conducting interviews. We have an initial survey that will be available for community members to share experiences and have the potential to be interviewed for the project!
