Glendale Oral Histories Now Available On Library Website

Great news from the Glendale Public Library's Book Talk blog:
The Glendale Public Library is pleased to announce that its Oral History Collection is now available through the Library's website. The collection features both traditional one-on-one interviews (conducted by the Glendale Planning Department in the 1990s) and historical recordings of events sponsored by the Glendale Historical Society in the 1950s.

The recordings, in some cases being made available for the first time, can be listened to through the media player (Windows Media, Real, etc.) on any computer--at home, school, or even in the Glendale Public Library.
It's incredibly cool that the library has digitized these histories and made them freely available as mp3's. I look forward to listening to them.
