Ben Stanton gave an interesting presentation about his project with the Washington Free Public Library called "Your Story." The project's goal is to collect, record and preserve the stories of Washington residents, and to share them with the rest of the community.

Check out all the audio interviews of Washingtonians here.

If you would like to participate (or get someone to participate), contact Ben Stanton at 461-2995 or You can also contact the Washington Library at 653-2726.
