With the support of the Institute of Museum and Library Services, StoryCorps provides libraries, and other community resources, the tools they need to create their own StoryCorps-inspired interview collections projects. We hope these resources will be used to bring together a wide range of people and launch unique local interview collection programs. We aim to support your work in innovation, lifelong learning, and cultural and civic engagement.
StoryCorps’ mission is to preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world. We do this to remind one another of our shared humanity, to strengthen and build the connections between people, to teach the value of listening, and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone’s story matters. At the same time, we are creating an invaluable archive for future generations.
