The White Plains Public Library has started a project—“Documenting COVID-19: White Plains Experiences” —and invites local residents to submit contributions. The Library of Congress and other archives are also collecting accounts of living through this pandemic. Amy Nathan, CUUC member and author of books for children and adults, has been reading books to a small group of RE students on Wednesday evenings and has volunteered to work with RE students on their story and art ideas, and perhaps put their creations together in some kind of format to share with others at CUUC or to send to one of those archives.  Here are two links that tell more about the archives that are collecting pandemic-related materials: White Plains Library & Library of Congress and Other Archiveszoom.us/j/817388428.
