We are inviting the library community to join in this initiative by sharing the history of your library, untold stories from those you serve, or your own history in relation to libraries. This is an opportunity to celebrate unsung library heroes, record origin stories, and share the transformative power libraries have had on you and your community. These histories will then be added to the Personal History Initiative digital archives, preserved for future generations as part of the public record.

We have created three categories for sharing:

  • Local Archives: The history of your library
  • Uncataloged: Histories from your library community
  • Me, Myself & Library: Your own history in libraries
