Photos of Singleton: a Pandemic Time Capsule

Please help us to document Singleton’s response to the Covid-19 Pandemic.


We have been forced to reinvent the way we go about our daily lives. We are working, shopping, teaching, studying, socialising and creating differently.

Singleton Public Library is making an effort to collect an archive of Singleton’s experience during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Contemporary accounts by everyday people will help future historians make sense of this unprecedented event.
We are collecting the history of the future.

Your submissions will appear on our Facebook page, Council website and saved in our Archives and Local History collections.

Ephemera


We’re collecting posters, flyers and mail-outs appearing in our local government area in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We’re specifically looking for the following items that you may receive in your mailbox or when you are out:

  • Government leaflets;
  • Leaflets from local businesses, restaurants and organisations regarding their services during COVID-19;
  • Community notices relating to COVID-19.

Please ensure you don’t put yourself at risk while gathering this material and adhere to current government advice about social distancing. We would appreciate it if you could set this material aside for you to mail or drop into the Library.

The Library may decline or dispose of material where we receive duplicate copies, or where it is not relevant to our collecting policy.
