The Local Government Association (SA) has been making a series of really interesting short videos about a range of aspects of the work of councils. These videos are up on You Tube & also available for councils to embed into their own websites etc.
Amongst the 40 videos made to date there are two which do a great job of showcasing libraries. One video, just released on 3 October shows the work of the Northern Areas council mobile library – which also visits communities outside their council boundaries. This video also makes a passing reference to “getting books in from anywhere across the state” by one customer.
The other video released in June showcases Unley’s Active Aging program, with a particular focus on the library’s role in providing tutoring for seniors in how to use computers and iPads. There is also a great statement about how important libraries are in the community.
