During 2010, the City of San Bernardino celebrated a rich 200 year history. Thanks to the hard work of the Bicentennial Committee, residents celebrated their heritage with parades, concerts, youth events and gala concerts and balls. In 2010, San Bernardino Library was awarded a "California of the Past-Digital Storytelling" grant from the California State library to continue and commemorate the success of this bicentennial celebration by digitally capturing stories of our past. Digital Storytelling is sharing local history - your history. With the help of trained staff, volunteer "storytellers" like you tell about a person, place, or event they experienced in San Bernardino that was memorable to them. Digital Storytelling is exciting because it brings to life our shared history in a new and different way - through visual arts. Each unique story becomes a part of the larger shared history of the community.
Participants in the project will be assisted in writing their stories, selecting historic pictures and photos to accompany the text and recording a 3-5 minute video segment. Each participant will receive a DVD copy of their story.
We began recording stories (by appointment only), Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on February 1, 2011 at the Feldheym Library, located at 555 West 6th Street in downtown San Bernardino.
