One Community, Many Stories: Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage in Fairfax County is a project to gather digital content from people of Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage who live or work in Fairfax County.
Please consider contributing your story or images to help others understand the history, experiences, and contributions of people of AAIP heritage in Fairfax County. A selection of contributions will appear on the Library’s Biblioboard Creator public digital platform. The project is a collaboration between FCPL’s Diversity and Inclusion Programming (DAIP) committee and the Virginia Room.
Beginning in April 2020, the Virginia Room began collecting digital submissions from Fairfax County residents describing their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. About 100 community members contributed approximately 300 items such as photographs, journal entries, poems, and artwork. A small sample of this collection is available for viewing through the FCPL’s Biblioboard Creator platform.
