Link to November 5 Stevens Point article, "Library collects life stories".
Excerpt: Portage County Public Library has been improving community for life for many years, and in the process has had significant impact on the lives of individual residents. Many of these are inspirational stories that deserve to be told, and a new project is under way to do just that.
PCPL, in partnership with the South Central Library System, is involved in a project called "Libraries ... For Real Life!" to collect and share the stories of library users in the seven counties served by SCLS (Adams, Columbus, Dane, Green, Portage, Sauk and Wood counties).
The project title reinforces the reality that today's public libraries are vibrant, dynamic community resources that meet the information, education and recreational needs of residents of all ages.
