The Keene Valley Library is set to host a reception to launch the multi-year local history project, Adirondack Community: Capturing, Retaining, and Communicating the Stories of Who We Are, on Saturday, June 15, from 2 to 4 pm. Light refreshments will be served.
Adirondack Community collects and organizes audio stories and related photographs from Town of Keene community members through an online platform to share the rich social and cultural history of their home in the Adirondack Mountains.
Project organizers have begun to record three- to five-minute stories from residents and visitors, who have submitted related images that document their experiences in Keene. These materials will be available to hear and see at the June 15 event.
Attendees will have the opportunity to speak with project organizers, and sign up to share their own stories related to Keene community, arts and culture, people, daily life, work, outdoor activities, environment, and catastrophes.
Keene residents and visitors who wish to contribute to the project may contact firstname.lastname@example.org for participation details. After June 15, stories will be available to hear online.
