Ellsworth Public Library

For the first time in more than a century our world is in the midst of a pandemic – a modern day plague. The Corona Virus – Covid-19 has affected the lives of all our citizens. Ellsworth Public Library would like to know how children and teens of our area feel about what is happening to their lives, families and communities. All responses become a part of the local history collection of the Ellsworth Public Library.
