Submit your COVID-19 Stories

COVID-19 Archive Banner
HPL’s Local History & Archives is documenting the stories and images of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic. We need your help to do it. Collecting these stories ensures the voices and experiences of our community are preserved for the future.
We are interested in your digital photographs or digital copies of pandemic-related artwork. We also encourage creative writing, fiction or non-fiction submissions — from journals, to reflections, to poems or prose. Help us build the COVID-19 Community Archive.

Please review and check off the consent agreement below. For any submissions of two or more files, please compress / zip these into one file package. Here are the instructions on how to compress/zip a file.


File size: 20 MB limit File types: gif, jpg, png, tif, pdf, doc, docx, gz, rar, zip

If you have questions about the project, experience an issue uploading a file, or if you would rather email us your contribution, please contact the project team at
