The L.A. Public Library (LAPL) is asking that Los Angeles residents help document what they did or saw during the Covid-19 Stay-at-Home period.
Led by Kelly Wallace, a LAPD librarian in the history department, and Digitalization and Special Collections librarian Sung Kim, they plan to compile a digital archive of “What it was like living in Los Angeles during this time.”
They are asking for photographs, letters, diaries, journal entries, emails, notices/signs and creative works such as poetry or art, that reflect that person’s reality during this time. (Visit: lapl.org/safer-archive
