The New Haven Free Public Library is proud to have our locations host Diary Disks – a project of of the Design Brigade project, initiated by Yale Center for Collaborative Arts & Media and Atelier Cho Thompson. These Diary Disks are circular blackboards placed around New Haven to gather the hopes, stories, and memories of the community and to be a memorial to the shared experiences of the community. The project began in May 2020 when the City of New Haven approached Design Brigade with the idea of creating a memorial for those affected by Covid-19 through the lens of social justice.

Visit our Ives Main, Fair Haven, Mitchell and Wilson locations to add your thoughts and memories before they are placed on the New Haven Green for the International Arts and Ideas Festival!
