Lockdown was tough for everyone.
But for a group of Border residents from refugee and migrant backgrounds, who normally meet twice a week at the Albury and Lavington Libraries, it was particularly isolating.
That concern was the basis for the new exhibition At Home, on display at both libraries, which was captured by 24 of the Cultural Exchange Coffee and Card participants during the pandemic lockdown.
Program coordinator Radha Guragai said the time at home was an "adjustment" for this community.
"This community look forward to their twice weekly visits to one of the libraries, creating colourful mandelas, playing cards and socialising," he said.
"We recognised their options to access online and other resources during this time was extremely restricted due to their limited English and so staying connected was especially important."

The participants were provided with a disposable camera to document their time at home and to share a little of how they filled their days during this unique period.
Many of the participants captured their time engaging in gardening, walking and staying connected to their families in America, Nepal and Bhutan.
Participant Purna Adhikari said she and her husband Rudra were "desperate" to get back to enjoying the program.
"It was fun learning to use the cameras and documenting our time in lockdown, but we love socialising and interacting with people during the program so we are looking forward to getting back to it," she said.
The exhibition is on display until July 5.
