The Hills Shire Library Service is documenting experiences of life in The Hills Shire during the COVID-19 pandemic and associated restrictions to maintain a record for researchers and future generations.

They are calling on Hills residents to share their experiences from the past few months.

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne, said she encourages The Hills community to submit their stories of life during this unprecedented period of time.

“With many people working from and spending more time at home over the last few months, what we consider normal has changed drastically,” Mayor Byrne said.

“Everything from daily routines, how we stay in contact with friends and family, our leisure time and more has been impacted by COVID-19.

“We want to keep a record of these changes to inform future generations and document the experience of living through a global pandemic,” Mayor Byrne added.

Submissions can consist of written pieces, photos or video.

Selected submissions will be shared on The Hills Shire Library website and across social media.
