Alex Kelly’s Oral History Project – Celebration 4/25 @ 6pm

Friday, April 25, 2014, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Jefferson Market Library (Map and directions)

Join us for an exciting celebration of Your Village, Your Story: A Greenwich Village Oral History Project!
Your Village, Your Story is a community-based oral history project at Jefferson Market Library that works to both preserve and document neighborhood history through the stories of people who have experienced it.

From December 2013 – April 2014, trained volunteer interviewers worked to collect over 90 oral histories of people who have a longtime relationship with Greenwich Village. This collection represents the voices of individuals who have lived, worked or spent over 20 years in the neighborhood.

At our final celebration we will:

  • Hear from Interviewers and Storytellers about their experiences
  • Listen to recorded interviews in our STORY BUFFET!
  • Find out what’s next and how you can access these recordings.  See a live demo from NYPL Labs about the NEXT PHASE of the project!
  • Celebrate the overwhelming success of the project with food, drink, and entertainment

**RSVP by April 21st:   Jefferson Market Library at (212) 243-4334 orCorinneNeary@nypl.org.
