TechSoup's product donation program includes easy-to-use Flip video cameras that allow you to share your library and community stories. Find out how public libraries are using this technology as a tool for making connections, recording library events, and sharing knowledge. Flip Video's simple camcorders can be used by people with any level of video experience to create, edit, and share movies. Libraries use these camcorders to give their staff, volunteers, and constituents the ability to further their causes through digital storytelling.
We'll showcase several libraries. The Tonganoxie Public Library in Kansas rocks the Flip at their library. Royce Kitts will share how they use Flip cameras to produce videos of library events, to record staff training, and to share advocacy techniques. The Charlotte Mecklenburg Library uses Flip cameras within their system for programming at their branches. Kelly Czarnecki will let us know how they use these videos for everything from library advocacy and outreach to answering questions about current events.
