History as it Happens

Students’ Perspectives on the Pandemic

The COVID-19 global pandemic changed libraries’ regular means of sharing and has impacted all aspects of life for all ages. Brown County Library wants to gather and share students’ perspectives to document this challenging and important time.


Students, ages 18 and under, were invited to submit their creative works relating to life during the pandemic and quarantine to be posted online. Submissions could include written works—such as essays/personal narratives, speeches/commentary, short fiction or poetry—as well as 2D artwork (drawings, posters, photography, images of 3D artwork). 


We hope you enjoy these creative works we received from local students!
