NPR's StoryCorps Comes to Nashville

Starting October 6, 2007, Nashville Public Library becomes only the second institution in the nation to host for a full year, "StoryBooth," an outpost of StoryCorps, the acclaimed national project that encourages Americans to listen to each other by sharing the stories of their lives in sound.

Select interviews gathered at StoryBooths are broadcast on National Public Radio (NPR) and heard locally on WPLN. Each story is also added to the StoryCorps archive at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.

The Nashville StoryBooth will be located in the Nashville Room on the 2nd floor of the downtown Main Library, 615 Church St. Interview slots are open to the public by reservation only beginning October 6, 2007. Reservations can be made by visiting or at any libary branch or by calling 862-5800.

A grand opening celebration will be held Saturday, Oct 6, 2007 from 10am to 4pm at the Main Library.
