keene valley libraryThe Keene Valley Library Association is seeking volunteers to participate in 35-minute focus groups as part of the planning process for a community history initiative, “Adirondack Community: Capturing, Retaining, and Communicating the Stories of Who We Are.”

Focus groups will be held at the Keene Library on Tuesday, June 26 at 4 and 7 pm and at the Keene Valley Library on Thursday, July 5 at 4 and 7 pm. At these meetings, volunteers will help decide categories to organize stories. Suggestions of family, friends, neighbors, and former residents who may be interested in sharing a three-minute story are also welcome.

The KVLA has received a Humanities New York Vision Grant to plan this multi-year project, intended to collect Town of Keene oral histories and related photographs. These are expected to be collected, organized, and made available online at the project’s completion.
