Did You Grow Up On An Iowa Farm?

The Algona Public Library is participating in The State Library of Iowa’s exciting oral history project, Earth’s Bounty in Iowa: Then and Now.   Members of the public can tell their own stories about growing up on a farm in Iowa.  The recorded narratives will focus on the firsthand experiences of ordinary Iowans.  The interviews will be posted on The Iowa Heritage Digital Collection website, along with verbatim transcripts of the interviews.

Interviewees will be asked the same set of eight questions (whether currently farming or no longer living on a farm). Each interview will last up to 45 minutes.

If you would like to tell your stories, contact the Library at 515.295.5476 to set up an appointment.
