Sharing our Stories

Caldwell Public Library received a 2014 MakerSpaces grant from LibraryLinkNJ and the NJ State Library to create a model for a local oral history project. Our project focuses on recording the recollections of area residents, businesses, and organizations. In 2014, the project gathered interviews at Marion Manor, Grover Cleveland Middle School and Congregation Agudath Israel's Hadassah. We also recorded a panel discussion reflecting on Caldwell University's 75 year history.

Do you have a story you'd like to share or a suggestion of someone we should interview? Contact us at or 973-226-2837 for details about how you can add a 20-30 minute story to this website. Our trained volunteers will facilitate and record the interview either on-site here or we can bring our mobile recording equipment and come to you. Thank you for your interest!
