Share Your Story

100 years from now, historians, residents, and future generations might wonder how the COVID-19 pandemic affected life in New Canaan. What were the challenges and struggles? What were the positive messages and relationships? New Canaan Library and the New Canaan Museum & Historical Society are collecting memories and stories to build a narrative of this unprecedented time.

Please share your reflections through essays, photographs, or audio files so that your stories– the stories of the New Canaan experience– can be archived and preserved. To share your information digitally please click here to complete the Google form or drop off a physical photograph, piece of writing, etc. in the drop-box located in the main entrance of the Library. If you wish to share an oral history please call 203-594-5098 and record your message.

This is an ongoing project; no submission deadline has been set at this time. Please note: by sharing your story, you are giving the Library and the Historical Society permission to upload your personal writing, photo, oral history, etc. onto a public digital library platform.
