This project at the Higashimatsushima Library has been collecting photos, videos, newsletters, anthologies, and other materials about Higashimatsushima city before and after the Great East Japan Earthquake. The collected materials are made available to the public in order to preserve the memory of the impact the earthquake had on Higashimatsushima as well as to prevent future tragedies, to assist the prompt recovery of the disaster victims, to provide material for disaster prevention education, to contribute to rebuilding the community, and to promote research into disaster prevention and reduce damage from natural disasters.
