Door to Door at DCPL

Saturday, November 19, 2011 @1:00pm - Saturday, November 19, 2011 @5:00pm

Record your story about the place you call home as part of the "Door to Door at DCPL" oral history collaboration between the DC Public Library and WAMU 88.5.

"Door To Door at DC Public Library" brings us inside the neighborhoods that make up our diverse city. We talk with residents about the history, geography and culture of their communities, and find out what makes them unique.

Radio journalists will be on hand to record interviews with members of the public at the Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Library story time room from 1 - 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19. Come with family and friends, photographs and your stories!

Select interviews will air on WAMU 88.5's Metro Connection, and all recordings will be archived in the Washingtoniana Division of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library.

Most interviews will take around 15 minutes. Walk-ins are welcome, but if you would like to reserve a specific time slot, call Anina Ertel at 202-727-0971.

This project is funded through the Library Services and Technology Act and sponsored by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
