The Pandemic Stories Project is a community storytelling project reflecting the experiences of Jessamine County residents during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Between May and September 2022, JCPL collected audio, video, manuscript, and photo submissions. Together, we created a communal record of this history-making happening.
