COVID-19 Journals

Monadnock Center Partners with Savron Graphics to offer COVID-19 Journals

When Rob Crowley of Savron Graphics in Jaffrey learned about the project to document the COVID crisis, he contacted the Monadnock Center with an idea to print journals for people to record their experiences.

“We thought it would be interesting to have some documentation for future generations to know how people are dealing with staying at home and social distancing. We hope people will use these journals to create a snapshot in time through writing, drawing and other creative ways to record their experience, “said Rob.

Once the crisis is over, journals may be turned in and Savron graphics will digitize them. Digital copies will be made available to the town historical societies and the Monadnock Center to be preserved for the future.

COVID-19 Journals will not be collected until after the stay-at-home order is lifted by the governor. The content of the journals will not be published in the newspaper.

These COVID-19 journals are free and have been distributed throughout the Contoocook Valley. Pick up a journal at the following locations: Savron Graphics in Jaffrey (32 Fitzgerald Drive, box located by outside office door), Peterborough Town Library (under the overhang adjacent to the rear entrance), Hancock Inn (on the porch), Delay’s Harvester Market in Greenfield (on the porch), and Dublin General Store (inside store, only available during store hours).

Please pick up your journal when you are out for essential activities like grocery shopping rather than making a special trip to get your journal.

The Monadnock Center thanks Savron Graphics and the Crowley family for bringing this idea to us and for printing the journals!
