Charlotte and Mecklenberg example – LibraryLoft author presentation
NYPL example (they’re really been transforming lately – fun to watch)
Denver Public Library
– Stories for Kids podcasts
– teen tech week – podcasts created by teens – they let teens use library equipment
– children making stop motion animation
– Summer of Reading video – fun!
– doing screencasting, too
Boulder Public Library teen webcasts – looks like they’re using Gcast
KCPL Bluford Branch podcasts in Myspace and Internet Archive
Edmonton Public Library’s YouTube channel – lots of puppet shows
Allen County Public Library’s zombie video
Seattle Public has some tutorials on youtube!!!
DPL – created a podcasting studio in a closet, added foam and burlap, etc.
National Poetry Month – one a day from staff
Cell phone video contest – they want to do this
YouTube Channel – working on that and a Facebook page

They have some staff that have “a following” – they’re wanting to get those staff to do more audio/video so they can continue to develop that presence online
