Help us document life in Central Maine during the COVID-19 pandemic by contributing to our Emergency Archive. We welcome anything created by you including audio or video diaries, journal entries, letters, photographs, drawings, personal recollections, and interviews with friends and family.

We also invite you to share stories about living through other times of emergency and upheaval. What personal memories or stories of community resilience do you have of those times? How have past events prepared you for our current moment of crisis?
