Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library: Connecting History to Today During the COVID Crisis

Creation of interactive public programs, K-12 teacher workshops, downloadable curriculum materials, and planning for a safe reopening.

The Wooodrow Wilson Presidential Library (WWPL) requests a grant of $119,857 to sustain four essential staff positions and purchase necessary supplies during the COVID-19 crisis, between June 15 - December 31, 2020. Working with the WWPL's Board of Trustees, our President & CEO, Curator, Director of Education & Engagement, and Librarian will prepare and implement plans for safely re-opening to the public after the pandemic closure, update our formal disaster plan, research and conduct free daily online public programming, create educational materials that can be downloaded for use at home and in classrooms, and transcribe/digitize related primary documents for free public access on the WWPL website. At a time when admissions and donations have been significantly reduced, WWPL staff and trustees are grateful for the opportunity to continue our 82-year legacy of educating the public about the 28th president, his impact on the world, and his relevance today and for the future.
