The Oral History Project, begun at Greenwich Library in 1974, conducts and preserves interviews with people who have helped to make or witnessed the history of Greenwich since 1890. It has conducted over 1,100 interviews and published 142 books. The project seeks volunteers to conduct interviews, proofread and index interview transcripts, help with design and graphics, and publicize the collection.
Since 1974, the Project has been a permanent committee of the Friends of Greenwich Library. OHP is staffed by volunteers, and new members are always welcome. The Greenwich Library Oral History Project is a member of the Oral History Association and the New England Association of Oral History.
