Community Journal Project

The Community Journal Project

A collection of marble notebooks and sketchbooks on book stands.

Become a part of Sag Harbor history by participating in the JJML Community Journal Project! This project is a collection of journals and sketchbooks for adults, teens, children, and families of the John Jermain Library to write about their life experiences, express their creativity, and share their stories with the Sag Harbor community. Check out a journal and write, sketch, collage, or more in accordance with the book’s topic. Finished journals will circulate just like regular library books, and eventually end their journey in the JJML archives.

All content must be kept G-rated, and returned books will be quarantined for a minimum of four days before being reviewed and made available for check-out again. Read the full participation guidelines here, which is also attached to the inside cover of each book.
