Local History

We are living in unprecedented times, and daily life has been disrupted in many ways. The library wants to preserve your COVID-19 story for future generations. 

We partner Darien Historical Society, the Flagg Creek Heritage Society, and local residents, businesses, and municipalities to collect and share the histories of: 

Oral History

  • Listen to more than 100 interviews with local veterans from World War II to the Iraq War
  • Listen to interviews of long-time residents to see how the community has changed and grown
