The Los Gatos Library invites Los Gatos residents to contribute pieces of their lives that document town life during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Library recognizes the value in preserving our Town’s history with careful consideration and thought, but the Library needs your help in telling the story of Los Gatos during this time of sheltering in place. We are interested in seeing your journeys in staying at home through all the various at-home projects, gardens, hobbies, homeschooling, community service, chalk art, and more. Any person who resides in Los Gatos is welcome to submit materials. We are all in this together, along with the whole world, and we are proud that Los Gatos remains a safe and healthy place for its community.  

Curated submissions will be made available in our digital collection .  

Submissions must be digital and may include:

• Photographs

• Letters, emails, postcards, and other correspondence

• Blog posts or social media posts 

• Notices, posters, or signs

• Creative art such as drawings, paintings, chalk art, poetry, etc.

• Journal and diary entries

Please make scans or take digital photographs of any physical items like artwork, letters, or signs, and make screenshots of online content like blog posts or emails.  

The Los Gatos Library thanks you for participating in collecting and documenting these real-life stories during these unprecedented and historically significant times. These materials will tell stories about this moment in history to future generations.
