Dear Colleagues: I have been asked to forward the following information
about StoryCorp¹s National Day of Listening that is coming up on November
27th. I hope some of you will consider participating ...


StoryCorps' National Day of Listening resources are up and ready!

Libraries can visit http://www.nationaldayoflistening.org/ to download our
free Do-It-Yourself Instruction Guide

There are several other ways libraries can get involved in the National Day
of Listening.

loved one on the day after Thanksgiving.
* Provide recording equipment and a quiet recording space for people to
record National Day of Listening interviews at your facility.
