"Life in Ho-Ho-Kus: Pandemic 2020" Submission Form
Ho-Ho-Kus, along with our country as a whole, is facing unprecedented times. In an effort to preserve this critical piece of our local history, Worth-Pinkham Memorial Library seeks residents' stories of how their lives are being reshaped by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Share your story using this form for a chance to be included in an upcoming local history book. The finished book will be available to residents in years to come so that our shared experiences are not forgotten. Responses may be edited for length and clarity, but we will reach out to you prior to publication so you can approve your final work.
