The Library Springfield-Greene County Library District Springfield, Missouri


The Springfield-Greene County Library District invites you to join us with our partners to document scenes of life in the Ozarks as we practice self-distancing and stay at home during the coronavirus pandemic.

We are seeking images and information from you to tell this story. These photographs can be images of daily life coping with social distancing, or unusual scenes outside the home such as drive-by birthday parties, empty parking lots, colorful messages on homeowner windows, 6-feet-away warning signs, and people wearing personal protective equipment.

Enhance these stories by describing the people, places, and events depicted in the image to preserve this piece of Ozarks history.

The images and descriptive information will be added to the Library District's Digital Archive. VIEW THE COLLECTION
