Remembering Solano County

Remembering Solano (small)

To celebrate Older Americans month, Solano County Library sponsored a project in April 2008 called Remembering Solano County.

The library collected and documented the stories of residents, who were school-age children or teenagers, living in Solano County during the 1930s and 1940s. Interviews were conducted by students and volunteers from Fairfield, Rio Vista, Vacaville and Vallejo.
