Common Ground Mobile Recording Booth is at North Branch Library until Sept. 21st

Everyone has a story to tell. What’s your story?

Common Ground: Community Stories is an ambitious oral history project and exhibition to create a full picture of the Greater New Bedford region and residents through story collection. A key goal is to give voice to community members. By gathering individual stories, Common Ground presents a diverse, inclusive, and celebratory accounting of the lived experiences of South Coast residents.

From now through September 21st, North Branch Library is hosting a mobile recording booth. The library’s Community Room has been reserved for most Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons, meaning those who wish to share a story can just drop in then. Recordings can be up to 10 minutes. Need more time? Then submit a second recording. For more information, please stop by North Branch Library, located at 211 Cross Rd., or reach out to Dina St. Pierre, Director of Libraries, at 508-999-0726 or
