The folks at the public library in Eau Claire have stepped up their game in promotion of the Summer Library Program. They created two videos, one to promote their program for younger kids--complete with a sequence at the end featuring even the dignified adult services staff members "busting a move." It's a fun, engaging, quick look at some of the cool things happening at the library, complete with mission control, aliens, and goofy dancing. The library's theme of "Blast Off" lends itself well to this silly video.
The other video was created by the same team that made the award-winning Beneath the Surface video for the CSLP contest this year. Written by library staffer Ian Jacoby, this promo for the teen program Take Me To Your Reader was filmed, directed, edited and acted by students at Eau Claire Memorial High School...and there is even an awesome original score created by another student. Again, I'm blown away by the skill and creativity of this bunch of teenage boys!
