Collection Facts


Historical Context

In September 2014 the New City Library began collecting oral histories with the assistance of a grant from the Library Association of Rockland county. Since that time, the library has collected over 100 oral histories with local residents.

Scope of Collection

These interviews document the changing landscape of Rockland County and the lives of long-time residents who grew up in the County. They also reflect the experiences of migrants originally from New York City, other parts of the United States, and from around the world.
