The library made the list for its video kits that are available for checkout to the city's aspiring filmmakers. In early 2011, the library collaborated with TinCan on a Federal Stimulus Grant that provided high definition video equipment for library goers to check out.
Each camera bag the library offers includes an HD video camera, a shotgun microphone, Pixela software, and corresponding cables. Also available are wireless microphones, tripods, and boom pools for the shotgun mics.
This equipment can be reserved through the library's reference desk and picked up at the circulation desk. Cameras are available at all of the libraries branches. Those who want to check out camera equipment will be required to sign an agreement form the first time they check out equipment, as well as show their library card, and photo ID.
