Forbes Library will develop the Moving Memories Lab, which will allow community members to record and preserve their stories, photos and other memories. The library will also celebrate the community's rich local history with related programming. The library will purchase equipment to record and digitize a range of media. Community members can access this equipment through the existing Library of Things and Moving Memories Lab pop-ups at partner organizations. Partners include the Center for New Americans, Northampton Senior Center, Historic Northampton, and Northampton Community Television. The project will offer trainings on use of the equipment and invite community members to add their digitized materials to the Library's collection. Additional events will include training on caring for digital memories and files, conducting and recording oral histories, and other topics.
