The Adventures of Super Librarian

Enjoy this cute cheesy commercial made by the McCracken County Public Library on YouTube. I'm not even sure where that is?!?! This is a light-hearted example of how libraries can use social web sites like You Tube to reach out to those who may not already be using library services. Most libraries do not have a huge budget, so it's definitely a plus that these videos can be made with little resources and be seen around the world. 

My guess is that many You Tube devotees are young people. It is important that we make contact with these future voters and tax payers now--in their forum. Putting library commercials, event videos, and even library tours just makes good sense.
