Leave Your Mark

Welcome

Welcome to the Life Story Library Foundation. You and your stories are welcome here!

Join us in our mission to save and share the personal life stories of our time. Your story could be one of them

Since ancient days, the power of story has drawn mankind together, motivating us to find words to explain what happened to us and why it matters. Stories shape our culture, identify our heroes, expand our perspectives, and transfer values to the young more effectively than any other tool. People are natural storytellers, and we reach for the strength, courage and wisdom of meaningful stories, especially in times of need. Welcome to the Life Story Library Foundation. You and your stories are welcome here!

We honor the voices, life experience and perspectives of people around the world by preserving stories, touching lives and connecting humanity. Everyone’s story is a valuable piece in the mosaic of human history—including yours.
