Covid-19 Stories

COVID Story Collection

To help capture the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Markham community, we are calling for submissions of stories, thoughts and experiences that describe how the pandemic has changed your day-to-day lives. Submissions are welcome in a variety of formats, including, but not limited to: journal entries, photographs, memory accounts, blog posts, poems, social media posts, audio recordings, video blogs, hand-written notes, etc. No experience is “too boring" or "too important," as the goal is to preserve everyday stories of life during a pandemic. Multiple entries are welcome.

* If you are having difficulty submitting your story here, please email the your story and/or media to mplcommunitylibrarians@markham.library.on.ca
