EAST BRUNSWICK–The coronavirus pandemic is definitely a historic event, forever shaping the world around us.

To record the stories of what happened and how the community lived through this unique time, East Brunswick Public Library is putting together a time capsule, according to a prepared statement from the library.

“We are living through history. The library is seeking stories, videos, photos, tributes, artifacts and artwork that capture your thoughts and feelings of this time,” Information Services Manager Karen Parry said in the statement.

Time capsule submissions will be collected on the library’s website. The library plans on building a website to share the stories of East Brunswick residents who lived through the quarantine era.

“This project is for everyone in the community. We would like to receive submissions from kids, adults and seniors. Someday, future generations will be writing about this period. We want to capture your experiences as we are making history together,” Parry said in the statement.
