The New City Library Oral History Project

Since September 2014 the New City Library has amassed a collection of over 100 oral histories with local residents. These interviews document the changing landscape of Rockland County and the lives of both long-time residents who grew up in the County and the new migrants from New York City and other parts of the United States as well as immigrants from around the world. We regularly hold listening programs that include clips of interviews based on a variety of themes. We would like to thank the following for their support:

Eileen McAdam of the Sound and Story Project of the Hudson Valley

The Library Association of Rockland County 

Ramapo Catskill Library System for the 2015 Outreach grant

Veterans History Interviews from David Kaminski, Clarkstown North / in conjunction with Rockland Independent Living Center

You can listen to many of these clips on our Soundcloud.
