The Providence Community Library system will be hosting Storycorps for the next couple of months. At various locations throughout Providence, interviewers will gather stories through audio recordings that will be archived in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. Storycorps is part of a broader national oral history project meant to capture and preserve Americans’ stories. Rhode Island Public Radio plans to air 4 minute excerpts from some of the interviews conducted in Providence. To schedule an interview with Storycorps, email firstname.lastname@example.org!
