COVID-19 History Blog
Want to be a part of history? We are in a unique historical moment that will be of interest to future generations. The COVID-19 pandemic is a historical event, unlike anything that we have seen in our lifetime. We have started a blog to document how COVID-19 has affected the library, and the Village of Morrisville, and us personally! We would love to have your input and how your life has been impacted by COVID-19. You can do this in whatever way you feel comfortable, whether it be keeping a journal or just sharing a single story, or a series of stories, about your life and your feelings during this time. Furthermore, you can write a poem, draw a picture, take a video, or whatever best expresses how COVID-19 impacted you! It can be about hardships and fears, or about hopefulness and finding joy (or both!)You may also submit something for a local business or organization impacted by COVID-19. We are also interested in photographs of signs from businesses in Morrisville referencing changes due to the pandemic. Please let us know if you would like your name included in your submission or if you wish to remain anonymous in our records. It would be great if you could include your age if you feel comfortable with that. We would love to hear from kids and adults of all ages! Please email your submissions to Jennifer Forward at email@example.com to have them posted!
