Normal Library | Extraordinary Stories
Normal Public Library Extraordinary Stories is a project created by the Normal Public Library in an effort to gather stories of impact from the community.
We are seeking our deepest roots and highest branches. We want to hear from people about the library’s impact upon them as individuals, as a family, or as an organization. These singular stories will eventually coalesce into the library’s legacy—providing us with a living document that demonstrates how the library has changed lives and helped to form the community we are so proud of.
These stories can take any number of forms - funny anecdotes, treasured memories, or thoughtful reflections. We are ultimately interested in creating a multimedia display of stories, so we welcome photo and video submissions as well as written stories.
Share Your Story
We welcome written stories, photos, videos, and audio files. There are a few ways you can get started.
We'd love to hear from you!
