Alpena Library asking residents to keep a diary of their COVID-19 experience

ALPENA, Mich. — Alpena’s George N. Fletcher Library is looking for help from the community in documenting their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. They say that future historians and every day people of the future will want to know our situations as we manage this crisis on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.

The special collections department in the library is asking the public to start a diary on how they’re dealing with current events. Writers may record by hand, transcribe news, draw, compose poems, gather stories, etc.

The library doesn’t want people to stress too much about proper grammar and spelling. The emphasis is on self–expression and the willingness to be a social commentator. To submit your information click here.
