Life in Livingston During Covid-19: A Community Story


Life in Livingston During Covid-19: A Community Story

The Livingston Public Library is launching a Community Story Sharing Project to document life in Livingston during the COVID-19 pandemic. Documenting and collecting the stories of our community as we adjust to life during this pandemic is essential to our role as librarians within the community.  We are asking that you share your personal experience with us, so that we may be able to capture what life was like in Livingston during the unprecedented and difficult time.

The Library is encouraging submissions from all ages of people living and working in Livingston. Written submissions, photographs, video, and audio clips are welcome. From small business owners, community leaders, senior citizens, and families of all types- This is an opportunity to have your voice, experience and stories heard and preserved for the future. Help compile a record of our community by sharing your story.

If you are interested, please participate by submitting your personal thoughts and experiences having occurred through March – April 2020. These stories and reflections will be compiled and made available to the public through our Local History Archive.

Visit our website at to fill out the online form. We will also be accepting the information via regular mail, but submissions should be held until the library reopens. Please include the following:

  • First and Last Name
  • Age
  • Any other information you’d like to share about yourself
  • An email or phone number to contact you
  • Your experience, kept to 1,000 words or less

Prompt ideas: What is your biggest fear? What is the most difficult aspect of the quarantine? What has been a positive aspect of the quarantine?

Responses can be mailed to:

Livingston Public Library ℅ Reference Department

10 Robert Harp Drive

Livingston, NJ 07039

We welcome and encourage the submission of photos, videos and audio recordings, please email them to

*Please only send your experiences if you are in agreement that the Livingston Public Library has permission to share the words and pictures with the public as part of the historical record and no benefit, financial or otherwise, is given or implied for the submitted material.
