Although it has been a while since the students from Mount Airy came on a tour of the Rare Books reading room, and the rest of the library, I have not forgotten about the video I made to record the occasion. Gretchen has been helpful in guiding me in my video editing, and hopefully my next attempt will be a little more polished than this first try.
I have posted the FlipVideo on the ZSR Vimeo Channel. Enjoy the jaunty music and the enthusiasm show by these young students:)
Here’s the original post I started on the Library Gazette:
Millenium Charter Academy Students in Special Collections
On Wednesday morning, we were fortunate to have the fourth graders from the Millenium Charter Academy in Mt. Airy visit the library. Gretchen allowed me to check out a Flip Video camera to shoot some footage. After taking her introductory course on editing, I managed to cobble together this short video (I need a lot more practice). The students were engaged in the materials that Beth, Katherine, and Megan had put out on display. The young lady at the end of the video was particularly enthusiastic about Bram Stoker’sDracula!
