Our Stories Unite Us: Oral History Development & Support


In the fall of 2014 Providence Community Library applied for StoryCorps @ Your Library, a grant which pitted Providence Public Library against over 300 libraries throughout the country. Following a swift up-hill battle PCL library was selected along with 9 other libraries, including Ferguson, MO. Since then Providence Community Library has worked to collect 80 interviews from our community and are now looking at ways to support other libraries and organizations in oral history collection. Join us as we discuss our journey in oral history collection, audio equipment loan opportunities, training, and brainstorming ideas for creating projects and partnerships - big and small, at your own libraries.
