ROCHESTER, Minn.- Local residents' stories will soon be heard, recorded and stored at the nation's oldest federal cultural institution, the library of congress.
This comes after the Rochester Public Library is awarded the national medal from the Institute Of Museum and Library Services.
As part of that award, StoryCorps will pay a visit to the library next week.
The non-profit will archive those conversations in the library of congress.
“It’s amazing that people are willing to share with us their very personal intimate stories and about how the library has transformed their lives,” said Kimberly Edson.
She works at the library and tells KIMT it's an honor to have local stories archived for the world to hear.
In January, the library plans to host an event where they will play parts of the conversations.
