Record a Loved One’s Story on National Day of Listening Nov. 23

Getting together with family for the Thanksgiving holiday? The producers of the StoryCorps series, heard on Ozarks Public Radio KSMU 91.1, invite you to join Story Corps’ National Day of Listening, Nov. 23.

On that day, they are encouraging family members to record an interview with a loved one to capture a favorite memory or family story – just as StoryCorps does in recording the lives and stories of everyday Americans.

The Springfield-Greene County Library, Drury University’s Convocation series, “Voices Unbound,” and KSMU encourage families capture those stories. On the Day of Listening, Nov. 23, record your stories at home. Or, let the Library help.

Reservations are required to reserve a time from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Library Center. Call 882-0714. Staff will provide recording equipment and a room.

Participants should bring their own flash drives to download the recording, or purchase one at the Library Center Reference Desk for $7.

The recordings are for personal use and will not be aired on NPR. However, participants may upload their interviews to NPR's National Day of Listening page.

Kathleen O’Dell is community relations director for the Springfield-Greene County Library District. She can be reached at kathleeno@thelibrary.org.
