What is Share Your Story?
Share Your Story is a project of the Montana State Library in partnership with Montana public libraries to collect and share Montana stories through videos and podcasts. Watch a video, listen to a podcast, or create your own. Ask your local library about how to share your story.
Where does Share Your Story get its funding?
This project is supported in part by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
How is Share Your Story affiliated with the Montana State Library and Montana libraries?
The Montana State Library used funds from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) to purchase the Share Your Story equipment. Montana libraries must develop a proposal that focuses on why they want to host the Share Your Story project, their community partners, and how they will promote themselves as a host site. Montana libraries are responsible for recruiting interviewees, for recording the stories, and for uploading the stories to the Share Your Story site. The Montana State Library reviews material and may select certain applicable stories for inclusion in another statewide project, the Montana Memory Project.
