Handling Great Adversity: Your COVID-19 Story

Moore Memorial Public Library has created an online digital space for the citizens of Texas City to document the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in our community.  With that said, there are many ways to contribute to this project.

  • Provide a personal story about how COVID-19 is affecting you and your community.
  • Include photos, memes, short audio and video diaries, social media screenshots, posters, flyers, and artistic creations to show changes in community spaces. 
  • Your tips for staying healthy.
  • What was it like to go grocery shopping?
  • Are you a local business owner? Share how COVID-19 impacted your business, your employees and your customers.
  • Teachers and parents: Describe the effect of COVID-19 in your school. Your classroom?  Your home-school?
  • Students also have a voice! What are teenagers doing to cope with changes to your day-to-day lifestyle? High School graduation changes?
  • Your opinions when you first heard of COVID-19. Did you ever expect it to come to Texas? Galveston County? Texas City? How did you feel about it?

It’s easy to contribute! If you have a Google account, just follow the link to and fill out our online form. If you don’t have a Google account, send an email to and our Local History Librarian, Theresa Mayfield, will send you a submission form.

Remember, your stories will have a voice in Texas City history. We are LIVING HISTORY, right now. Future generations will look back and learn, through your contributions, what it was like to shelter in place, practice social distancing, and to find joy when surrounded with so much uncertainty.  Moore Memorial Public Library thanks you for being part of this historic project.
