The People's War project in Thanet is a partnership between Thanet Libraries and UK Online centres in Thanet.

We will be running 2nd World War reminiscence sessions in libraries across Thanet in April - June, to collect people's 2nd World War stories and add them to the BBC WW2: People's War website.

Volunteers will be on hand at the library sessions to help those who are unfamiliar with computers to type their memories onto the website.

For more information about your local WW2 session - ask at your local library in Thanet
