We invite members of the community to tell their stories & record how the pandemic has impacted their lives. Click the registration button to schedule your recording session.
COVID-19 has dramatically impacted our community, disrupting our daily lives in numerous ways. Some residents have lost family members, their jobs, their homes; others have been forced to rearrange their lives due to school closings or other factors. We invite members of the community to tell their stories and record how the pandemic impacted their lives, in the past, current times and projected future. Residents will be able to record their experiences from February 2022 to November 2022 at the Aspen Hill and Davis Libraries. Part of a statewide initiative and launched by the Global Z. Recoding Project, the project is possible by a grant from Maryland Humanities. The oral history digital recordings will be archived by the Maryland State Archives and Digital Maryland, where they will serve as a historical record of the challenging times we all have faced and continue to adapt to and live with.
Residents interested in participating need to make an appointment at https://mcpl.libnet.info/v/assets/586
