As the new Teen Librarian (still so excited to officially have that title) at my library I inherited a Film Crew Club, which has been an amazing experience. Sure some kids/teens didn’t come back after the first meeting, and our time table was definitely a little ambitious, but the kids and teens who did stay have been a fantastic group to work with. Many of them really have an interest in filming or acting or script writing and have been willing to put in a lot of work and cooperate with people they may not have known before. Last Friday we did after hours filming in the library and the kids and staff had a great time putting in the extra work needed to get this done. Watching the kids’ scripts come to life and seeing what they were capable of in terms of vision and direction was a truly cool experience.
Totally loving my new job!
