Your Story – COVID-19 in Salem

The Salem Public Library invites you to share your stories, drawings, photos and videos that describe life in our city during the COVID-19 crisis. Your story could be helpful to other residents living through this unprecedented time, and will be a valuable resource as we tell Salem’s story in the future.

View stories from your friends and neighbors here

How has the virus disrupted your daily life? What are you missing – school, graduation, sports, extracurricular activities, social plans, vacations? How are you staying in touch with friends and family? Are you finding ways to move your body and get fresh air outdoors? What changes, big or small, are you noticing in the world around you? What have you learned about yourself? Has anything changed for the better?

Please fill out the form below, including as much or as little identifying information as you would like – email and phone numbers will not be shared or published. Your entries will be collected and the project will be viewable by the public, both online and in the library once we reopen. 

We’re excited to share your stories, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
