LECHLADE LIBRARY PROJECT – COVID 19

Lechlade Community Library has started a project on Covid 19 to capture your memories and experiences. This Pandemic is an event in our times which needs to be captured as an historical event that will inform future generations. Never in recent times has such an event affected us all personally, as a community, socially, educationally, regarding employment, intergenerationally, ethnically and in many more ways.

It has taken away from us loved ones suddenly, divided us from our family, interrupted our daily activity, destroyed employment opportunities and entrepreneurial enterprises, interrupted our children’s education and opportunities.

Lechlade Community Library held a competition for children to tell us how they have felt through short stories and poems.

The Photography Club in Lechlade have tried to capture the mood of the community and displayed those photos on the Library. If you have photos consider submitting them.

The Library now has a book in which you can write down your memories and experiences which will be kept for posterity and historical purposes. Pop in when the Library is open and help us create this unique document.
