Your Story: Allentown in Quarantine

What is this?

The Allentown Public Library is collecting stories from individuals on how the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting quarantine and mandates have affected their lives.


The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting quarantine continues to affect our society in monumental ways and will be remembered for a long time. However, sometimes it may be difficult for posterity to see how the lives of individuals and their daily experiences were changed. This is why the library is collecting those individual stories and storing them in our archives to be accessed by future generations.
