Innovator Spotlight-Lend Us Your Story
In the midst of the recession, Rochester Public Library (RPL), NY, was competing fiercely for shrinking resources and recognized the need to bring library users forward to share their stories of personal impact. In partnership with the City, RPL launched a contest inviting people to record their narratives.
Three winners were selected from hundreds of submissions; all videos appeared on the City's website. And, a rich mosaic of the many powerful ways that libraries bring people together and meet their needs is captured in their final composite video.
