Everyone Has a Story to Tell - What's Yours?

 

The Grundy Library is collecting personal stories in an effort to capturing community diversity as part of a new oral history project, Everyone Has a Story to Tell – What’s Yours?.  StoryCorps, one of the nation’s largest oral history projects, suggests “Taking the time to do an interview with a loved one, family member, or friend is a unique opportunity to remember someone or something important in someone else’s life.” And you are invited to remember. The public is encouraged to come in and interview friends or family members by appointment from June through August at the Library. Participants need not be a Bristol resident, and the interviews can be of any subject. These personal stories from the public will be recorded with copies saved to the Grundy Library Historical Collection and given to the interviewer and interviewee.  The entire project culminates with a Library exhibition during October that will feature some of the collected oral histories. To register a story recording session, or for more information, call (215) 788-7891 ext. 6.

Part of a Healthy Living Series

 

The simple act of walking can lead to improvements in your health. Join us for a mile-long stroll around the borough starting at the Grundy Library. Walkers are encouraged to wear comfortable clothes, shoes, and sunscreen.  As an incentive to further healthy living, participants who regularly take part in the walking club and healthy living series events are entered into a drawing for a free fitness tracker.
