Good news! Tippecanoe County Public Library is once more recording the personal stories of people in our community. Join us for our new listening project, Journeys: Life Reflections.

In 2015-2016, TCPL participated in the StoryCorps project. This national initiative records oral history around the country. Sixty recordings were made by people discussing the important moments of their lives. Now you have a chance to add your own memories to our local archive.

You can reserve a slot by calling 765-429-0113, or by visiting the Downtown information desk. Keep an eye out for news about special events and themes throughout the year. If you have any questions, call head reference librarian Alison Moss at 765-429-0176.
