Safer at Home: Stories and Art

As we continue to live through these unprecedented times, LA County Library wants to help you connect socially while still staying physically apart. Stories and art have always helped us share our experiences, connect with others, and show that we are not alone. We invite you to share your story of what living through this time has been like for you—including the emotional, funny, and somewhere in between—whether that means you’ve been staying at home, serving as an essential worker, teaching your children, rediscovering yourself, or living in sweatpants. Share your unique story with us in whatever artistic form it takes (from diaries to drawings, poems to songs) and help us capture this historical moment.

Submission Rules

We will be accepting submissions from May 15 through December 31, 2020

You may submit as many pieces as you would like. Submissions can vary in format, including images of artworks, photographs, written works, or audio content.

This content portal is part of the BiblioBoard Library and is open to all LA County Residents. Children under the age of 13 must have a caregiver submit their digital items for them. Any submissions will be publicly available to users.
