In the past 25 years, StoryCenter (formerly the Center for Digital Storytelling) has developed a number of programs for education, human service and civic organizations in using story to build community, and transform lives . In the last three years, the Berkeley, CA-based organization has been in partnership with the California State Library in bringing story-based engagement projects to some 50 local libraries as part of the California Listens project (californialistens.org), creating a statewide archive of well produced digital stories (https://archive.org/details/storycenter).  StoryCenter founder Joe Lambert will present perspectives on the strategic role of story-based efforts for today's libraries, review the lessons of California Listens and share a portion of the documentary created about the project, and share the newest initiative of StoryCenter in the oral history/community memory project field, the iPad-based recording kit, The Listening Station, and Listening Station Plus app. (storycenter.org/listening-station).
