Oral History

Oral History CassettesThe oral history collection, originally recorded on cassette tapes, is available in the Grace Schmidt Room. 

Oral history cassettes may be borrowed for one week. You are allowed to borrow a maximum two cassettes at a time.  They may also be listened to in the Grace Schmidt Room. You will need to bring a pair of headphones to use our cassette player.

These recordings include interviews with prominent local figures and community members, and provide a wealth of family, local and social history.

Older tapes may have some loss of clarity and other irregularities. Some of the interviews may span two or more audio files.

Oral History Tape Digitization Project

We are in the process of digitizing our oral history collection.

As the recordings are digitized, they are being made available on the History in the Making database.
