Somerville Public Library is one of ten public libraries across the United States to be selected as a StoryCorps @ your library pilot site. Through this project we aim to record the voices of a diverse mix of 30-40 Somerville teens and to capture their stories, thoughts, and ideas. Teens may be interviewed by (or interview) friends, or family members, mentors, etc. and community facilitators will help to guide the interview, ensure paperwork is filled out, and set up and break down the equipment.
There are slots to sign up for on Tue., 4/22/14 from 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and further slots on upcoming days (see SPL Calendar). Want to share your story?  Sign up in the Teen Room, or by calling 617-623-5000 x2936, or email
