Documenting Life During the Pandemic
The Pandemic Memory Project is an ongoing program of the Local History & Genealogy Center of the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library designed to collect first-person stories and images that document Trumbull County’s experiences and responses to the pandemic. We are asking for the community’s help to establish a lasting record of how we are living, working, and coping during this unprecedented time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
You are invited to share how you have personally been impacted by this global health crisis. If you would like, you may also upload a digital photo that helps convey your experience during this pandemic. PLEASE NOTE: Submissions will become part of the archives of the library.
Compiling your stories, anecdotes, and observations now will allow us to make a lasting record of how we are living, learning, and working during this unprecedented time.
Possible Questions to Consider:
- How did you experience any food, housing or job insecurities?
- How are you juggling family and caretaking responsibilities?
- What do you miss most about your pre-COVID life?
- If working remotely, what has working at home been like?
