The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented time in our world and local community. The lives of individuals, businesses, and organizations are being turned upside down.

Ogunquit Memorial Library's COVID-19 Archive aims to give our community members a way to share their experiences of this period. How has your life been changed? Are you finding anything particularly difficult? What are some of the positive new aspects of your life during the lockdown? And do you find anything just plain odd?

This online archive is a way for Ogunquit to tell its pandemic story. Whether it is a written account of your experience or a photo of our town, the Ogunquit Memorial Library COVID-19 Archive will collect your submissions for future reflection and historical research.
