The Lewiston Public Library, in partnership with Niagara Falls High School, is seeking area veterans interested in sharing their stories.

Veterans of all ages, from all branches of service are welcome to participate.  If a veteran is deceased, interviews can also be done of family members.

The project involves local area high school students conducting interviews, recording responses, gathering digitized copies of photographs and documents and finally adding these stories and images to a newly created blog maintained by the Lewiston Public Library:  Niagara’s War Stories:  interviews with veterans from the Niagara area.

These interviews will be conducted at the Lewiston Public Library, Niagara Falls High School or, if requested, at places more convenient for the veterans.

There will be a special training session for students interested in interviewing veterans on Saturday, October 11th, at 1:00.
