Mount Clemens Public Library and Macomb Cable Network (MCN) are pleased to announce that they have been selected as the winner of the 2016 State History Award in the media category for their jointly-created local history video series, A Minute of Your Time.
A Minute of Your Time presents local history topics in a one-minute format. The series currently includes 41 episodes on a variety of local history topics, and airs during segments of MCN’s award-winning Bath City Beat program on local access cable channels across Macomb County. The episodes are also available online from Bath City Beat’s YouTube channel.
Staff and student producers at MCN create the episodes from scripts and source materials drawn from the historical collections of Mount Clemens Public Library. Several local civic leaders have also participated in the project by lending their voices to the narration of some of the segments.
