The Cube at the New City Library

Get a sneak peek from one of our interviews from this past weekend on Soundcloud Picture a ten-foot stainless steel cube, balancing on its edge. The surrounding area are mirrored in the metallic sides of this beautiful piece of modern sculpture. Suddenly the door opens to reveal a comfortable, soundproof recording booth. Welcome to The Cube. The New City Library is hosting the Cube in conjunction with the Library Association of Rockland County. All recordings made during the weekend will become part of the Library Association’s digital collections on hrvh.org (Hudson River Valley Heritage) which is hosted by the Southeast New York Library Resources Council. Hudson River Valley Heritage will archive the collected interviews and preserve them for future generations.

  Residents from all five towns in Rockland have agreed to participate in interviews that will last approximately 45 minutes each. This weekend's events will kick off a concentrated effort to collect and record stories from the residents of Rockland County and archive these stories in the Library Association of Rockland County’s digital collections at hrvh.org.

The Sound and Story Project of the Hudson Valley created The Cube to collect the stories of everyday people throughout the Hudson Valley. “We’ve always dreamed of collecting stories in our city parks, at library fairs, street festivals or farmer’s markets. This fall our dream becomes a reality when The Cube hits the road. Because it can be constructed and dismantled in hours, we’ll be able to travel from town to town recording interviews.” says Sound and Story Director Eileen McAdam.
