StoryCorps Collection Growing

The StoryCorps collection of oral tales about the American experience keeps growing, totaling 30,000 interviews with 60,000 participants since launching in 2003. This past weekend the mobile story van visited Lexington, KY, for the secoond time and recorded stories from 300 people.

Initially the only permanent recording booth was at Grand Central Station in New York, but in the ensuing years permanent booths also have been installed in Atlanta and San Francisco. Two mobile units launched in 2005 have collected stories in all 50 states and Puerto Rico.

All the interviews collected will be archived permanently in the Library of Congress at the American Folklife Center, and stories are also edited and played on National Public Radio's Morning Edition. Information about the project is available at
