Virtual Poetry Slam 2014

The Greenfield Public Library is hosting a Virtual Poetry Slam in celebration of National Poetry Month.

We are collecting short videos of area residents reading poems out loud—either their own original work or someone else’s—and compiling them into an online poetry event. The videos will be posted on the Greenfield Public Library YouTube channel and linked on our Facebook page. In May, a compilation of the videos will air on GCTV.

There are several ways you can participate:
• Upload your own video to YouTube, make sure to use the hashtag #VirtualPoetry14, and we will link to it
• Post your video to the Greenfield Public Library Facebook page
• Bring your video in to the library, and we will help you upload it!

    Are you having trouble downloading e-books from the library? Don’t understand your new laptop or tablet? Need help troubleshooting problems with your email account? How about setting up a Facebook account?

    You can come to the Greenfield Public Library for help. One-on-one technology help appointments are available daily at the Greenfield Public Library. Call the Information Services desk at 413-772-1544 x6 or come in to set up an appointment with Lisa, Hannah or Shirley. 30 minute appointments are available Monday through Friday.

    Examples of topics we can help with include how to:
