Welcome StoryCorps!

The StoryCorps MobileBooth across Washington Blvd. from the Allen County Public Library, July 7, 2010.

Since 2003, more than 50,000 people have had their stories recorded by StoryCorps and preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, and millions have heard some of these stories over National Public Radio stations. With the stated mission of providing Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs the opportunity to record, share and preserve their stories, StoryCorps uses everyday people to record 40-minute interviews with their friends, family and neighbors. Sponsored by Northeast Indiana Public Radio, the StoryCorp MobileBooth is now parked in the ACPL parking lot and area residents are busily interviewing friends and family for archiving! In celebration of their visit, the Genealogy Center presented The Basics of Scanning today, the first of four lectures on preserving your family’s story, and it was a rousing success as attendees received information on how to digitize and preserve photographs. Check our Special Programs page for more information about the rest of the lectures.
