Portable Oral History Kits Now Available
Each year, the Kentucky Oral History Commission (KOHC) receives numerous requests from history/genealogy enthusiasts, K-12 teachers, and students interested in recording and preserving the important stories of their families and local communities. To meet this demand, KOHC has developed ten portable, user-friendly Oral History Kits. The Kentucky Department for Libraries & Archives (KDLA) joined as a partner on this exciting program by utilizing their library circulation expertise to ensure distribution throughout the Commonwealth.
This project is funded by a generous grant from the Kentucky Colonels allowing the Kentucky Historical Society, KOHC, and KDLA to develop and distribute the Oral History Kits, ensuring the rich tapestry of Kentucky’s stories is preserved for future generations.
These kits are available through an interlibrary loan through your local public library and KDLA. For more information, contact your local library or KDLA at (502) 564-8300.
