We need your help!

We are looking for actors…

We here at the Cape May County Library are working on a video project for the New Jersey State Library and the New Jersey Library Association. Our task is to make a three minute promotional video. We've decided to promote video games in libraries.

We are looking for anyone interested in taking on the role of people playing games; the same thing that people who come to our Game Night do so well just about every week. If anyone is interested we will have some forms for you to have your parents or guardians to sign at the next Game Night as well as at the main desk. Parents are welcome to take part in the video too.
We will be giving more information on when we will be filming after we get an idea of how many of you will be helping out.

If your parents have any questions or concerns regarding the project, they can contact the Technology Librarian, Lisa Marie, at 609.463.6380.

You can also check out the State Library’s contest page,

Google is Good Part IV: Google Groups

Google Groups is a really cool tool that you can use for a number of things. Say you have a group project for school. You can use Google Groups to create message boards, online discussions, and more. It'll keep all of your work in one place and make it easy for everyone to collaborate on group projects.

Here's an tutorial video if you're interested.

If you have any questions, stop by the library and feel free to ask me (Justin The Librarian).
