In the past sixty days, Nashville Public Library has launched the Flood 2010 Digital History Project. Here are some project highlights:
- NPL has successfully collaborated with 16 different organizations and agencies.
- NPL has led 5 oral history workshops and trainings, resulting in 31 new project volunteers.
- The first project Recording Station was set up to capture the voices of residents in North Nashville. Collaborating partners from the North Nashville/Bordeaux Restore the Dream Center led the way in assisting NPL with identifying interviewees (Feb. 22-24).
- An additional 25 interviews were conducted in less than 60 days at the Main library’s Special Collections Center. The next Recording Station will be conducted at the Brentwood Library, April 12-16.
