The Smithtown Library's Long Island Room invites you to participate in an important project!
Over the course of the last few months, the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent shutdowns have had a dramatic impact on the entire world and our own community. As challenging as these times are, however, it is important to recognize and document the historical significance of this period so that future generations may learn from it. We hope that you may be willing to help the Long Island Room with this effort.
You can participate in a variety of ways:
- Collect relevant items you may come across during your daily activities. Click here for a list of examples.
- Keep a journal about or otherwise reflect upon your experiences (i.e. essay, poetry, artwork, etc.). Click here for articles about the importance of keeping a journal and how to get started.
- Share photographs/ videos of the way your life or surroundings have changed.
