Neighborhood Historians

Posted by ajreilly on

The Neighborhood Historians project addresses the imperative need for community-centered history-gathering, where the process is just as important as the content being recorded.

A major component in this early 2022 project is training community members to BE the storytellers. To do so, Littleglobe and the Santa Fe Public Library will train Santa Fe residents to use professional recording equipment, gather oral histories among their friends and family, edit their recordings into fluid storytelling, and archive their creations in a public digital repository hosted by the Santa Fe Public Library.

In addition to documenting and amplifying community memory, we hope to foster a sense of belonging and cultural ownership among Santa Feans, providing space for Santa Feans to tell their own stories on their own terms. Through community workshops, story booths, story sharing events and skills training, the Neighborhood Historians project seeks to empower Santa Feans to become co-creators of a rich living history, encouraging community dialogue, healing, and the collective determination of where our story goes from here

 

Become a neighborhood historian and get paid to tell stories!

Tell the world who you are and what you love. Share stories of the people in your life, their experiences, and their dreams for the future.

Mentors from Littleglobe’s film team, Santa Fe Public Libraries’ Nuestra Santa Fe program, and the Manitos Community Memory Project will work with students, classrooms, community-based programs, families, neighbors, and other Santa Fe residents and provide training and mentorship for story gatherers and oral historians.

Receive a $500 stipend for working with us!

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

Youth ages 15-19, families, Santa Fe residents

HOW MUCH TIME WILL THE PROGRAM REQUIRE?

We are flexible and anticipate participants will work 5-10 hours per week

HOW DO I APPLY

Contact Dylan Tenorio: DYLAN@LITTLEGLOBE.ORG or at 505.980.6218

This program is made possible thanks to the Santa Fe Public Library, Northern Rio Grande National Heritage Area, Littleglobe, NewMexicoWomen.org, National Endowment for the Arts, Santa Fe Arts & Culture Program, Manitos Community Memory Project, Capital High School, and the Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library.

SFPL has resumed in-person service at Main & Southside

Posted by ajreilly on

The Santa Fe Public Library has opened our doors to the public at the Main and Southside Libraries. Main and Southside will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., until further notice. Due to staffing levels, our La Farge Branch will remain as Curbside Pickup only with the hours of 12-5:30 p.m., Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Patrons once again are able to browse the shelves for materials to check out, use a public computer station for up to one hour per day, print documents, use the restrooms, shop at our Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library bookstores at Main and Southside, etc. We can still provide curbside pickup for those unable to come inside, just call circulation from the parking lot and park in the assigned curbside spaces.

To protect unvaccinated children and adults, staff and library users will be required to wear masks that cover the mouth and nose while in library buildings, regardless of vaccination status.

Until further notice:

  • Most in-person library programs will be held outdoors
  • Meeting rooms are not available to the public
  • Patrons are requested to make visits brief if possible, preferably one hour or less
  • Food and drink (besides water) will be prohibited in the library

We’d like to thank the Santa Fe community for your patience, resilience, and kindness since COVID-19 restrictions closed our doors in March of 2020, and prompted us to explore different ways of serving you. We love seeing your smiling eyes again!
