STAFF at Huddersfield Library are lending a helping hand to people who want to contribute their war memories to a new website.

The BBC has set up a website called WW2: The People's War to create an archive of real people's accounts and memories of the war.

The idea is to preserve the information to allow future generations to understand the conflict and the sacrifices made by soldiers and ordinary people.

The website also allows people to discuss issues, conduct research into their family's war-time stories, or search for facts about World War Two.

On Wednesday, April 14, people will be able to get help inputting stories on to the website from staff at the library.

The help sessions will be held from 9.30am to 12.30pm in the library's committee room.

For further information about the session, contact the local studies library on 01484 221965.
