Oral Histories of Sault Ste. Marie
The Library is pleased to announce the launch of an archive collection aimed at preserving our local history through storytelling. In partnership with The Oral History of Sault Ste. Marie, a project founded by a volunteer committee, community history is captured through video recorded conversations with local citizens.

The interviews can be accessed by searching for "Oral History" through the library catalogue.
