Adirondack Community storytellers have recorded 160 first-person accounts about life in the Town of Keene, yesterday and today, and there are opportunities for the public to participate in this Keene Valley Library project, from home.
Adirondack Community: Capturing, Retaining, and Communicating the Stories of Who We Are, is a multi-year local history project that collects and organizes three to five minute audio stories and related photographs from Town of Keene community members through an online platform to share the rich social and cultural history of this community located in New York State’s Adirondack Mountains.
The Catastrophe category has numerous heart-warming stories and there are also two podcasts dealing with local catastrophes. Seven other categories — arts and culture, work, people, outdoor activities, daily life, community, and the natural and man-made environment — also demonstrate the grit our Adirondack neighbors are made of.
