Everyone Has a Story


Everyone Has a Story videotapes stories for free and posts them online.   We’re partnered with The Friends of the Library, The Historical Society. and Community Action Commission.  In addition to videotaping stories ourselves, we also train others on how to use free tools to record stories using smart phones and laptops and to post them online. 
Please consider making a donation which goes towards training others to record stories and archiving them online, for our story tellers (like you), their friends, family and professional associates… and for posterity.
