West Washington Ave in 1960Add your voice to the Living History Project. Here’s how to get involved:

  • Living History Narrators are the people who are interviewed for the Living History Project. Want to nominate a Living History narrator, or are you interested in being a narrator yourself? Email us at to get the process started.

Currently, we are actively looking for narrators to talk about their experiences and histories in: South Madison, the historic Greenbush neighborhood, and the Old Market Place neighborhood.

  • Would you like to coordinate an oral history project for your neighborhood, workplace, organization, or community in Madison? Email us at to find out how the library can support your project.
  • Digitize items on your own using the library’s Personal Archiving Lab. You will need to complete an equipment orientation prior to using the PAL on your own.
