The Shenandoah County Library’s Truban Archives and Shenandoah Room and its competent and energetic archivist, Zach Hottel, provide an important resource in Shenandoah County. SCHS is always pleased to promote Zach’s initiatives in the community and are happy to encourage response to his effort to have a citizens journal about their experience with the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Zach has passed along this link for your use.

SCHS works closely with Zach on many fronts; as a member of the Shenandoah County History Council, with a standing position on the Truban Archives & Shenandoah Room Advisory Committee and co-hosting our annual Shenandoah County Heritage Day with the library. We also enjoy  mutual cooperation with family history research requests, have made many donations of books and other materials to the Archives when appropriate, and participate jointly with other projects.  Zach has a regular column in the SCHS newsletter and helps to keep our Facebook page fresh and informative.
