StoryCorps @ Your Library

ImageStoryCorps wants to help public libraries create a local audio collection, to produce high-quality library programming that will expand a library's influence and engagement in the community.

You have a chance to be part of the project! Apply now for the "StoryCorps @ your library" grant offered by StoryCorps, in partnership with the American Library Association Public Programs Office with support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

Ten selected libraries will receive equipment, training, promotional materials and other resources to help them develop community documentation projects using the popular and unique facilitated StoryCorps interview model.
As part of the StoryCorps approach, each interview participant receives a copy of their recording. With participant permission and based upon a written agreement with StoryCorps, local libraries will retain copies of fully released interviews. Copies of fully released interviews will also be deposited with the Library of Congress.
If you have questions about the application, please refer to the guidelines, or contact the ALA Public Programs Office at 312-280-5045, or
