Fulton Library Completes Second Memoir Project

 

The Fulton Public Library has announced the date for its presentation of the 2014 Memoir Project, a writing program designed to preserve personal memories of Fulton’s history. The presentation will take place September 25th at 6:30 p.m. and will be held in the Cayuga Community College’s Fulton campus Event Center, located in the former K-Mart Plaza next to the Dollar Tree.

“The Memoir Project’s main goal is to capture this area’s rich history through the stories of the people who lived it,” says Betty Mauté, the Library’s director. “We started this project in 2013 and had over 40 people contribute a memoir, which we collected into an anthology. It became a “bestseller for the library and helped fund other projects for our patrons.”

This year, Jim Farfaglia, the project’s coordinator, continued with the same format for the writing process. He offered a series of classes, one-on-one assistance and offered to interview those interested in crafting a memoir. Jim received assistance from the project’s co-coordinator, Kathy Andolina, as well as the Friends of the Fulton Library and other volunteers.

Special activities will be planned for 'Teen Read Week'.  To join this group or to see what's coming up, find them on facebook: fultonpubliclibraryteenadvisorycouncil
