Oakville History Makers Now Accepting Submissions!

Come make history with us!

From June 30th to July 25th, The Oakville Public Library invites students in grade 3-8 to be a part of Oakville’s history! Students are asked to interview a family member about growing up in Oakville. Those stories will be published as part of an online exhibition, later to be compiled into a book for the Library’s shelves. Students are also encouraged to send family photos along with their interviews.

All the details and online submission form are available at http://tinyurl.com/nzhgw8x.

We look forward to your stories!
