TechSoup's Digital Storytelling Challenge: Share Your Story with Us!

At TechSoup, we’re dedicated to providing your library, nonprofit or charity with the resources it needs to tell its story. Participate in our interactive trainings all month to learn valuable production techniques, then create your 90-second video or five-image slideshow, and enter it to win. Your stories inspire others, so let's share them!

In the last fiscal year, Sacramento Public Library increased its public program offerings by 32% over the previous year: 133,725 people attended some 5,213 programs throughout our 28 branch library system.
