Our Story Bridge: Connecting the Past and the Present
Learn how libraries can help share and preserve the stories in our communities!

On the first anniversary of the release of OurStoryBridge, Jery Y. Huntley, MLS, on behalf of the Keene Valley Library, will be talking about three interrelated projects sponsored by the library and lauded by librarians, school library media specialists, and teachers across New York State and the nation. These projects demonstrate how libraries have evolved and how important it is to meet our patrons, especially students, in the media they prefer, online.

Jery will be joined by Debby Carter, MLS, Assistant Librarian at the Tremonton City Library in Utah, who will share her library's experience as the first to use the OurStoryBridge mod

In this webinar you will learn about the Adirondack Community and OurStoryBridge websites and how you can create a local story project based on our model; explore the Teacher’s Guide contained on both websites so that you have a resource to use and share with students and teachers; and recognize how you can implement, help communicate, and improve the projects.

The goals of these projects are to:
- Capture the rich cultural history of communities with a focus on recording older generations before their histories are lost,
- Build civic pride and engagement among students to encourage their growth as involved community members.
- Offer libraries unique opportunities to help build intergenerational connections in their communities

Presenters: Jery Huntley, OurStoryBridge Founder, MLS and Debby Carter, Assistant Librarian, Tremonton City Library
