StoryCorps @ your library

StoryCorps @ your library (SCL) is a project created in partnership with the American Library Association (ALA), with support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

The goal of this program is to provide libraries with the resources and training to implement StoryCorps’ interview methods within a framework of high-quality library programming.

SCL partner libraries receive recording equipment, training, promotional materials, and other resources to help them develop community documentation projects using StoryCorps’ unique, facilitated interview model. Interview participants each receive a copy of their recording and have the option of archiving their interviews with StoryCorps, their local library, and the Library of Congress.

In 2015, StoryCorps is engaged with 10 public libraries that were selected after a competitive application and review. SCL partner libraries are chosen in part for their potential  to design multi-format public programming and deepen their engagement with their communities through oral history and storytelling.
