Andrea Zimmermann, a reference librarian at the C.H. Booth public library in Newtown, was part of an effort to preserve both condolence materials and press materials about the tragedy for future researchers.
"We decided we needed to create an archive, and we wanted it to be a representative archive...As a library, we feel all of this that we keep, whether it's digitally formatted or physically housed in the library, it needs to be kept for a purpose...
It needs to be accessible, it needs to be organized so that it's useful, and that's the whole premise for the project we're doing, which differs from other projects in the community that are going on now."
