Collingwood Museum

Virtual Literary Collectors' Night · July 28 · 7 PM 

In partnership with the Collingwood Public Library. 

Has your interest in a specific book, series or genre resulted in a personal collection? Big or small, we want to hear about it!

Perhaps you collect, comics, works by a specific author, or memorabilia related to books? Do you have a Hogwarts-themed room in your home, a bottle of raspberry cordial in your pantry, or every edition of The Hobbit on your shelf? This event is for you! 

Interested in joining but don't have an item to share? As a viewer, you'll have the ability to ask questions and join the conversation without the pressure of being on screen. (Viewers must still register to access the Zoom session.)

Collecting for Collingwood: COVID-19

Collingwood residents have a long and impressive history of actively collecting and telling the stories of our community. In good times and bad, residents have documented local and global events that have changed the way we live, work, and play.

The COVID-19 Pandemic is a historic global event that we are experiencing both together and apart. The routines of daily life, business operation, school life, and community interactions have been dramatically altered. In 100 years, what do you want the residents of Collingwood to know about the challenges we are facing today and how we are overcoming them?

The Collingwood Museum wants to hear how COVID-19 is impacting you. We understand that your stories may be challenging to tell due to the traumatic reality of the virus and we thank you for taking the time to assist in documenting this event for future generations.

All content submitted to this collection may be used by the Collingwood Museum for future research and reference, education, exhibitions, programs, marketing, reproductions and promotional purposes.

How can I contribute to this collection?

If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Shaw, Museum Supervisor, or by telephone at 705-445-4811 ext. 7222.

Thank you for sharing your story with us.
