People of Yardley...We Need You!
2020 has been a strange and difficult period for all of us, so here at South Yardley Library we would like to create a positive out of so much negativity and we need your help…
We are embarking on a social history project documenting our shared experience of life in Yardley during the Coronavirus Lockdown./p>
We aim to create a community exhibition named: ‘Yardley Through The Pandemic’ that will reflect our diverse and wonderful community. This is where you, our amazing community step in...
We would like to include your photos, artwork, poetry, diary entries, reflective writing, journals, community projects, acts of kindness, positive experiences or unexpected benefits from lockdown life...anything that you have created, collated or compiled through-out this historic period of time.
Once our exhibition ends all of our exhibits will transition into our extensive Local History Archive here at the library thereby archiving our shared lived experience for historical purposes and future generations.
Are you with us? If you have any items you would like to share with us and add to our archive please pop and see us here at the library or you can email South Yardley Library.
