What changes have happened to your lifestyle and everyday life during the COVID-19 pandemic? Everyone is learning new ways to live during this time. We want to know how the pandemic has shaped our local culture.

Share what you have been doing through 2020/21 in The Blue Mountains! Life has looked different over the past 12+ months, but together we have persevered and may have even tried some new things. The Blue Mountains Public Library and Craigleith Heritage Depot museum and archives seek your photos, stories, documents, audio recordings, videos, and more to capture your experiences as a community and as residents of The Blue Mountains during the COVID-19 pandemic.
