"If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten."
- Rudyard Kipling

The Power to Transform
Stories have power. They delight, enchant, touch, teach, recall, inspire, motivate, and challenge. They help us understand. They imprint a picture on our minds. Our storytelling ability, a uniquely human trait, has been with us as long as we’ve been able to speak and listen. Not only do people love to tell stories, people love to hear stories!
That’s why we’ve partnered with Carrie Gallahan, founder of Saving Libraries. Carrie was inspired by this African proverb to start a movement to save the stories of our elders.
