In conjunction with its community reading program in February, the Tigard Library would like to interview people who lived during the Great Depression. Tigard Reads 2010 will feature John Steinbeck’s classic novel The Grapes of Wrath. The Library will present a series of events throughout February focusing on the 1930s and the impacts of the Great Depression and Dust Bowl.
In association with the Tigard Historical Association, the Library would like to video-record those who grew up during the Depression about their own experiences and memories. The Library will provide participants with a copy of the interview and also add the interviews to its collection.
Oral history interviews will be conducted between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. each Saturday in February at the Library. Each interview will last about 45 minutes. Interviews will be conducted by appointment only. Please call the Library at 503-684-6537 and ask for extension 2517 to register.
