The Many Voices of PenrithPenrith City Library


The Many Voices of Penrith

Penrith City Library will be conducting an oral history program on the Festival theme: Having a Voice. We are inviting members of our local community, young and old to take part in an oral recording to capture their thoughts, hopes and dreams of Penrith and our City, past, present and future.

Each participant will receive a copy of the recorded oral history, either on cd or on a memory stick. The Library will also retain a copy which will be catalogued and placed in the Local Studies Oral History Collection. Each session will take about an hour to record. Participants must book a time for the recording which will be undertaken during office hours between 8 and 19 May. Bookings can be made with Vanessa at Penrith City Library on 47328040.
