ILF Conference: MPL Library Videos Workshop (Epilogue)
Thanks for "Rocking" Our Workshop!
The theme of the 2010 Indiana Library Federation (ILF) annual conference was Libraries Rock! On Wednesday, November 17, 2010, Mooresville Public Library (Mooresville, Indiana) presented an ILF workshop about using videos to promote literacy and library programs and events. The workshop (Book Trailers Rock!) was presented by Suzanne Walker, M.L.S., MPL Youth Services Librarian, and William R. Buckley, J.D., MPL Indiana Room Librarian
On behalf of the presenters, MPL would like to thank everybody who attended our workshop. We appreciated the wonderful and enthusiastic turnout, which exceeded the room's capacity (it was standing room only for about 10 attendees). We hope our staff was able to provide some interesting information about how videos may be used to promote your libraries.
If you were unable to attend, or if you attended and did not receive a handout (we ran out! Sorry!), and you would like a free copy of the team's MS-PowerPoint slideshow, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org to request a copy, and we will be happy to email it to you. The slideshow is rather large, so please advise if your email server has size restrictions for attachments.
For an example of one of the library's videos, here is our most popular video, Librarians Do Taio Cruz, which Suzanne Walker wrote, edited, and co-directed (along with Jaymi Edwards, MPL Early Literacy Specialist):
