Grants of $2,500 to USA public libraries and library systems to develop and implement community documentation projects through a program-prescribed interview model. Each selected library will receive equipment, training, promotional materials and other resources to execute the project.
The goal of the project is to enable public libraries to implement StoryCorps' interview methods and resources and create a local audio collection that libraries will use to produce high-quality library programming that will expand their influence and engagement in their communities.
During and following interview collection, participating libraries will develop local programs and events that complement the interviewing process.
Libraries will each receive:
-A $2,500 stipend for project-related expenses.
-A toolkit of written and web-based customizable program and promotional support materials.
-A StoryKit (a customized set of professional recording equipment) to use to record onsite interviews during the grant period and retain for future use after the close of the pilot project.
-A two-day in-person training by StoryCorps staff at the StoryCorps headquarters in Brooklyn, New York to orient volunteers and library staff to interview collection, digital recording techniques, and archiving interviews in StoryCorps™ proprietary database. The orientation workshop will be held in on April 8-9, 2015. All travel and lodging costs will be covered by StoryCorps.
