Libraries launch COVID-19 Community Memory Project

Brock Libraries is looking to preserve the memories of township residents during the pandemic.

Staff are creating an archive of community memories and initiatives for future generations and would greatly value contributions from the community.

“We are currently living in a moment of history that people in the future will be talking about. Brock Libraries would like to help you record your memories and experiences for posterity,” reads a media release.

Whether you are:

– Making just minor changes to your normal routine to maintain your regular life;

– Using this time of physical isolation to learn something new (handicrafts, baking bread, organizing);

– Participating in a project to help others during this time (sewing masks or headbands, 3D printing face shields etc.);

– Helping out neighbours or throwing a drive-by birthday party;

– Teaching your children through online learning or other skills that they wouldn’t learn at school; and,

– Working on the front lines or as an essential service.

“Please consider sharing your personal stories, journal thoughts, newspaper clippings, scrapbooks, videos or photos of the projects you undertook,” reads a media release.

Your contribution to our COVID-19 Community Memories project can be submitted via mail (Brock Libraries, P.O. Box 310, Beaverton, ON, L0K1A0), email ( or dropped off at one of the three branches once they re-open.
