WHAT IS IT
Listen Up! Stories from the Northwest Corner is a new, semiannual program organized by the North Olympic Library System that is focused on collecting and archiving oral histories from Clallam County residents.
Inspired by Listen Up! will present local residents with ongoing opportunities to help tell and preserve the story of Clallam County for generations to come.
Interviews are conducted with a participant and an interview partner, and the completed recordings will be archived and made available for future listening on the Washington Rural Heritage website, accessible through www.nols.org.
The North Olympic Library System has collected over a dozen audio interviews from area veterans as part of its ongoing oral history program, “Listen Up: Stories from the Northwest Corner.” Included are stories from WWII, the Vietnam War, and the War in Afghanistan.
