Oral History Project

In connection with the Secaucus Public Library’s 80th Anniversary, the Friends of the Library sponsored the Secaucus Public Library History Project. Former Library Director Katherine Steffens formed and continues to lead the Library History Committee. As their first project, the committee created an oral history of the Secaucus Public Library, from its incorporation in 1935 until the present. Throughout 2014 and early 2015, dozens of library users, supporters, staff and Friends of the Library members were interviewed by Katherine Steffens and filmed by Friends of the Library Fred Grafeld. The interviews were used to create a 90 minute documentary about the Secaucus Public Library, which premiered at the library on the official 80th Anniversary.

To view the full documentary as well as a selection of complete interviews, please visit this YouTube page.
