Are you a foreign born Gates resident? Do you know someone who is? We need your help! The Library and Gates Historical Society are partnering on a program to explore the diversity of our community, and are seeking stories from foreign-born Gates residents.

Stories will be recorded and shared in a virtual program to be presented later this summer. To get involved, please email and we will send more information. We look forward to hearing your story!
