Tell Me a Story Oral Histories

Tell Me a Story

Oral history is an important part of genealogy and local history. It connects the living to those who have gone before us and shines a light on the stories that help reveal their character.

Tell Me a Story is a Mid-Continent Public Library initiative that provides the ability to record and preserve memories, stories, and living history. Multiple options are available with the Tell Me a Story initiative.
