Late this morning, The Genealogy Center opened its two repurposed areas! We invite you to take advantage of these spaces.
The Life Stories Center is very exciting for us. Everyone has a story. Most of us have many stories, and these stories not only tell the history of people, but also of the community in which they lived. Stories can include military reminiscences; childhood memories; workplace recollections; accounts of church, political or club activities; and immigration and first generation sagas, just to name a few. Activities at the Life Stories Center will include mentoring potential interviewers, making audio recording equipment available, and archiving the recordings.
The Discovery Center will provide space for interest group discussions, genealogy and local history group meetings, pop-up classes for visiting groups, as well as The Genealogy Center’s events and classes. The two ceiling-mounted computer projectors can be used in tandem or separately, with the entire audiovisual set-up having the ability to use laptops, netbooks, smart devices, DVDs, and Blu-ray.
To schedule use of the Discovery Center or Life Stories Center, or for more information, contact the Genealogy Center at 421-1225, email Genealogy@ACPL.Info.
