Create a Memory Book Series

Make a beautiful collection of your life stories and family photos through Brooklyn Public Library. Every week, we’ll gather as a group on Zoom to share our photos and the stories behind them. We’ll help you preserve them in a personal memory book to make a great keepsake or gift for loved ones!

Please see prompts below:

September 30 – What is your relationship to the wilderness or wildlife? / What is the scariest but most rewarding thing you’ve ever done?

October 7 – Do you have any special autumn traditions? / What are some foods you enjoy cooking, baking, or eating when the weather begins to cool down?

October 14 – Tell us about a great ancestor of yours. / How were you different from the family you grew up with?

October 21 – Tell us a story about your hair, whether that’s a memorable hairstyle or your relationship with your hair over the years. / What was hard about growing up?

October 28 – How did you celebrate Halloween when you were younger? / Tell us about an occasion you dressed up for.

November 4 – Tell us about a time your travels went terribly wrong but created great memories. / Tell us about the first vacation or trip you took on your own, without your parents or guardians.

November 18 – What are you most grateful for? / What are the simple everyday pleasures in your life?
