1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Students ages 13 and older are invited to participate in the Great Thanksgiving Listen. By downloading the StoryCorp app, you will be guided through the nationwide “Great Thanksgiving Listen” interview experience from recording to archiving to sharing a grandparent’s story with the world! Please note that you must have iTunes installed to download the app. With the app anyone, anywhere can record a conversation. This Thanksgiving, we hope teens, parents, and grandparents will take the time to talk, share stories, and impart wisdom for generations to come. You can do this from home, but volunteers will also be available at the library the day after Thanksgiving, November 27th, from 1 – 3 p.m. on the 2nd floor to answer questions and to assist anyone interested in participating. Additional ipads and smartphones will be available but preferably we ask that you bring your own device and of a course a special grandparent or two! To learn more go to the Great Thanksgiving Listen.
