Covid-19 Diary graphic

Living in a current state of unprecedented crisis,  historians and everyday people of the future will want to know how we spent our days. What was the NE Michigan, lived experience of a global pandemic from a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. In hopes of sharing peoples' stories with current and future generations, the Special Collections Department, of the Alpena County Public Library, invites you to keep a diary of living during the COVID-19 epidemic in Northeast Michigan.

Diarists may type or write by hand, transcribe news, draw, compose poems, gather stories and so forth. No stress needs to be placed on proper grammar, spelling or style. The emphasis is on self-expression and a willingness to be a social commentator. Events are changing by the day. They are specific to you, and to your families and friends and communities. Please start writing now! The Special Collections Department will welcome your diary’s deposit in either analog or digital form.

To submit your information and to view writing prompts from the Library of Michigan visit Google submission form.  Questions about this project can be directed to Don La Barre, Head of Special Collections, at dlabarre@alpenalibrary.org.
