Become a part of history by sharing your Lake Oswego story with us.  We have begun collecting new oral histories from community members! 

If you have a story that you’d like to share, please submit your name and contact information to a reference librarian by phone 503.675.2540 or email loref@ci.oswego.or.us  Interviewees will be asked to fill out a pre-interview questionnaire before being scheduled for an interview.  Interviews last between 30-60 minutes and are conducted by trained staff and volunteers.
