McBride Oral History Project

One of the most recent projects the Library has undertaken has been creating a collection of oral history video interviews of the area’s many pioneers and early settlers.  This project has been funded by the New Horizons for Seniors program of the Government of Canada.

Below are some edited clips of a few of the interviews. To view the complete archives of video interviews, visit The Robson Valley Oral Histories.
