The Madison Library’s Local History Project is a community endeavor coordinated by the library, and compiled by volunteers. We are just getting started, and we could use more volunteers. Contact Mary Cronin at the library if you’re interested. Training is provided.
Here is some of what we are working on now:
- Scanning historical items in the library’s collection. These include Old Home Week booklets, postcards of Madison, Madison High School Yearbooks.
- Indexing old newspaper clippings, mostly obituaries.
- Indexing vital records.
- Transcribing manuscripts.
Here is what we would like to get started:
- Collecting oral histories from people in town. We will provide a digital recorder, an interview guide, an recording log, and a release form.
Contact Mary Cronin at the Madison Library if you’d like to help or find out more, 603-367-8545 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
