The Bridges Library System serves and supports 24 public libraries in Waukesha and Jefferson counties by fostering collaboration and innovation. The “Gathering and Sharing Stories” initiative started with a grant from Bader Philanthropies, Inc. in partnership with StoryCorps, a national oral history non-profit. Staff from nine libraries were trained as StoryCorps Facilitators and so far. Anyone is welcome to sign up to record a conversation through this project; they are also doing a recording event at three libraries for veterans and military families on November 7-11. Angela Meyers and Jennie Fidler joins us to talk about the event.
