Help make history by sharing your story of the COVID-19 pandemic. Just as we relied on information about the Spanish Flu epidemic in 1917-1918 to inform our response to COVID-19, future generations may benefit from understanding what we experienced. By collecting your stories, we become witnesses-to-history, providing insight into daily life during this global pandemic and adding to the historic record.

How can you get involved? Please take some time to fill out the form at and feel free to share with your friends, family members, and neighbors — the more people participate, the better understanding we’ll have of the impact of COVID-19.

This survey consists of 20 questions — you do not have to answer them all. Answer what you like — each one you answer helps paint a portrait of our community during COVID-19. Feel free to fill out this survey multiple times. For example, if you answered the questions on February 1st and have more information that you wish to report on May 1st (random dates selected), submit a second survey response. Questions can be directed to Aurora Free Library Director, Sandy Groth at Thank you for participating!
