Huron Storytellers

About

Huron Storytellers is a local history project that exists to document, archive, and make publicly available oral records of local human knowledge, experience, and character and to preserve that record for the education and enjoyment of generations to come. One story was shared each month, beginning in September of 2013. Those stories will be available on the Library's homepage and Facebook page. At the conclusion of the fall season, a DVD was made available for circulation that will include all three episodes.
