Community Memories

  1. The Burlington Public Library is launching a project to collect the stories of how our community is living through this truly historic time. We want to learn the stories of how we all—as individuals and as a community—are reacting and responding to the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic. The library will archive your experiences, to insure that this community account is available to future generations.

  2. We are asking agencies, organizations, and individuals to share their pandemic stories through media. You can submit all forms of media, including but not limited to: stories, photographs, music, poems, artwork, and so much more.
