Have a lot to say about the pandemic? Can you say it in just six words?

Fond du Lac Public Library is challenging patrons to describe their memories, thoughts and hopes about the COVID-19 pandemic in just six words. Inspired by the book “Not quite what I was planning: six-word memoirs by writers famous & obscure,” the program will run from May 3 to May 31 and may include memoirs such as, “Library reopens; better days to come!”

To participate, stop into the library seven days a week. A table will be set out by the central staircase with slips of paper for patrons to write their memoirs. Staff then will post those six-word memoirs to large boards for everyone to read. Six-word poems also may be emailed to for inclusion in the project.

Have a photograph or piece of art you’d like to include? Bring it by FDLPL or email it to us as well to be posted with the memoirs.
