Documenting the Pandemic

We are living through an incredible moment in our lifetime. Documenting the impact of this crisis on regular people, as it unfolds, is important information. This written record can help us be better prepared for future emergencies, can be used as an archive for historical research and sharing our experiences can unite us even as we are at home self-isolating. 

 

Denvlle Public Library, in partnership with the Denville Township Historical Society, is collecting the thoughts, feelings and general impact of the COVID-19 Quarantine on Denville residents of all ages for a historical record of life in Denville, NJ circa April 2020. The collection will be made available to the public in the near future and we plan to include a follow-up several months’ post-quarantine. 

 

Between April 20 and May 4, we ask those who live or work in Denville share in 1500 words or less, and/or include a captioned photo, describing their personal experience in response to one or more of the following questions: 

  • What has surprised you most as this quarantine has unfolded?¬†
  • What is your biggest fear?¬†
  • What is an unexpected, positive impact of the quarantine?
  • What is the most difficult part of the quarantine?
  • What are your hopes for the future when this is all over?¬†

 

All submissions* must be accompanied by your first and last name, age and any other information you would like to include such as occupation, school/grade, etc. Please send as an attachment via email to zablockip@denvillemuseum.org or via USPS to: 

Denville Public Library, Attention: COVID-19 Notes
121 Diamond Spring Road
Denville, NJ 07866

* Only send this work if in agreement that DPL and the Denville  Township Historical Society has permission to share the words and pictures with the public as part of the historical record and no benefit, financial or otherwise, is given or implied for the submitted material.
