The Greenwich Library's new construction project has finished, COVID-19 restrictions are lifting, and the library is open to the public. This means the Oral History Project is now open for business. However, the OHP traditionally operates in a limited capacity for the summer through Labor Day. A volunteer will monitor the emails and phone messages, so we plan to respond to any inquiries within one week.
The Greenwich Library Oral History Project is a collection of interviews with people who have helped to make or witnessed the history of Greenwich, Connecticut, since 1890.
To date, the collection contains almost one thousand interviews and 142 books.
The entire collection is available at the Greenwich Library, as well as the Cos Cob and Byram branches, and Perrot Memorial Library. Books and transcribed interviews may be purchased at the Oral History Project office.
As we know, the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 were postponed for the first time in history, for a reason other than war, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The Opening Ceremony of Tokyo 2020 is scheduled for July 23, 2021.

Village Life in Old Greenwich
The roots of Old Greenwich run deep from a tiny and close community at the turn of the twentieth century to the vibrant town center that exists today. In 1989, OHP volunteer Marian Phillips interviewed Daniel Catanzaro, a longtime resident of Old Greenwich who currently resides in Riverside. Our thanks to Elizaveta McCauley, a sophomore at Greenwich High School, for her contributions to this blog.
Junior League of Greenwich
The Junior League of Greenwich has spearheaded many great civic projects in our town, created, organized, and led by volunteers.
