SHARE YOUR STORY
Los Gatos StoryShare– Los Gatos History Built by the Community
The Los Gatos StoryShare project is a community storytelling program created to collect, preserve, and share the personal stories of our community. The project is intended to be a permanent and ongoing so that individuals can contribute stories now and into the future. The project will help the History Museum to develop and maintain an enhanced historical narrative of the community and its residents. The stories will be integrated into our permanent and rotating exhibits.
The concept offers a variety of paths for the community to share their stories and memories with the museum. Visitors can share their stories via email, mail, or in our Museums during special StoryShare events. Please check our website for upcoming StoryShare events and themes!
