Library Videos Promote Services

After last week's great webinar, Tech Training Made Simple with Online Videos, which focused on using Common Craft videos for technology training, I thought it would be interesting to look at how one library is creating their own short videos to market their services, including techie ones!

From Amber Slaven:
"The King County Library System (KCLS) is creating short videos to describe various services. Only a few have been completed so far, but I was lucky enough to be involved with two (along with the nice people in our Web Services Department and other Outreach staff). Since it is sometimes tough to describe what it is that you do or what services you provide, video is a neat way to draw people in and create interest."

Is your library creating videos or using fun, easy technology videos like those from Common Craft? Share your links in the comments!


Making videos for library outreach/instruction has never been easier. The hardest part is coming up with ideas that you can turn into something your patrons will actually want to watch. Stop by The LibVid Awards"to see some great examples of successful library videos and it may just get those creative juices flowing.
