People Library

Project Description:

mo

The People Library is a program developed by four RPI students, designed to bring together the people of Troy so that they may share their stories that would otherwise go unheard. In order for this program to be a success,  a website and an app were developed alongside the primary event design to assist in connecting individuals already interested in telling or listening to stories, as well as to stir up interest in individuals who may not have considered such an activity before. The website and app were developed with the assistance of  the Troy Front Parlor Story Telling Group, yet it is designed so it may be used and developed further by additional organizations such as the Sanctuary for Independent Media, the Albany Underground Railroad History Project, and the Rensselaer County Historical Society, among others.
