Solano Stories from California of the Past
Digital Story Station - www.DigitalStoryStation.com
Storytelling has been passed down from generation to generation as a way of keeping history alive. We all have our favorite stories that we enjoy hearing when friends and family gather together. What if we could continue listening to these stories anytime we wanted with a simple click? With digital storytelling, this is possible. Digital storytelling provides the technology to interview and record historical moments that may have otherwise been lost. Solano County Library has been given the opportunity to participate in a project called California of the Past. This project will ensure that the storytellers and pieces of California’s history will never be forgotten.
