NCompass Live: A Library Centennial Celebration in Photos and Memories

Hear how Baright Public Library created ‘A Library Centennial Celebration in Photos and Memories’ on next week’s NCompass Live webinar on Wednesday, July 12 at 10am CT.

Using a qualitative research methodology termed “photovoices,” oral histories, memories, and reflections were gathered from Ralston community members for Baright Public Library’s centennial celebration. Long-time and recent residents were interviewed to gather personal stories and photographs provided by the interviewees. Participants were asked to share photographs that showed something meaningful in relation to the Ralston, Nebraska community or the library and to talk through why they chose that photo and what it means to them. This session focuses on the research process including participant recruitment and staff time, the research methodology, and the value of this type of project for a centennial celebration.

Presenter: Amy Jo Ellefson, Adult Programs Coordinator, Baright Public Library, Ralston, NE
