Share Your Story: COVID-19 and the Middletown Community
Please share your COVID-19 pandemic stories and photographs!
Russell Library wants to document and preserve your memories and stories about life during the COVID-19 pandemic in Middletown. Your contributions will help build a collection of primary documents giving future generations a window into how people coped with the personal and economic impact of the current pandemic. Let us document life in Middletown and add our stories to this global historic event.
This project is open to all who live or work in Middletown. We are seeking material from people of all walks of life including healthcare providers, essential workers, parents who are homeschooling their children, caretakers for the elderly, business owners, furloughed workers and those who are working from home. Subjects may include acts of kindness and heroism, challenges faced, and anything that documents life during the crisis. Your experiences and how the pandemic has changed or transformed your life will be preserved at Russell Library as a part of Middletown’s historic narrative.
