Milton Public Library Summer Reading Program and LIVING HISTORY: Our Perspective and Observations during COVID

Join the Milton Public Library and the Bucknell Humanities Center to create a community archive filled with your memories and experiences during Covid. This book will act as a historical record to provide your perspective, observations, and a community narrative about this historical time. The Milton Public Library is home to the stories and memories of our community and by telling your story we can share our experiences and create a local historical record to share with future generations.

How to participate in the Living History: Our Perspective and Observations during Covid, community archive book.
