COVID-19 Archive

We invite you to contribute your reflections on how you are experiencing the ongoing situation around COVID-19 to our Lucretia Little History Room permanent collection. In this challenging and unique time, we have witnessed incredible and creative examples of connection, hope, and unity. Share your story so that we may preserve them for the future!

  • Photographs
  • Correspondence
  • Journal entries
  • Artwork (drawings, paintings, poetry)

As you get ready to send us your materials, think about how they capture your experience and the effects of COVID-19 on your daily life. How has social distancing affected you? What is it like being an essential worker? What has the transition to telecommuting been like? What changes have you noticed in your daily routines and interactions with your community?

Feel free to write a paragraph to accompany your submission (no more than 150 words) to tell us why you chose that item, how your life has changed during this time, or anything that might help future generations understand how COVID-19 has affected Mill Valley.

Please send your high-resolution digital submission to: with the subject line Submission: COVID-19 Archive 

We ask that you limit yourself to one submission.

Include the following information with your submission:

  • Date (when was the item created?)
  • Location (address, cross-streets, and/or neighborhood that the item is referring to)
  • A short title (e.g. An Abandoned Downtown, Our Family Under Stress, My Overstocked Pantry)
  • Choose to include your name or remain anonymous

Please evaluate your privacy needs before you send us your content. Your submission may appear on our website, in our social media, in exhibitions, and in formats and channels we can't even imagine that will be available decades from now. By sending us content, you represent that you own the content, it is original to you, and you give the Library the right to copy, display, and adapt the content in perpetuity in any media existing now or in the future.
