Dayton Memorial Library Community Memories Project

Collecting and archiving coronavirus experiences


DAYTON—The Dayton Memorial Library is undertaking the initial collection, maintenance, and eventual archive of accounts of coronavirus in Columbia County. The purpose of this Community Memories Project is to encourage agencies, organizations, and individuals to document their actions and experiences during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Caitlyn Dare, a staff member at the library, is asking for submissions of poetry, prose, diary entries, photographs, music, art, memes, videos, data collection, or any other medium that can be stored digitally.

“Our goal is to make all holdings available to the public for use and we are currently in talks with Washington Rural Heritage to possibly host submissions on their site,” Dare said.

All material, along with the biographical information of the submitter, will be held securely by the Columbia County Rural Library District.
