At our library, the attendees were more excited to join the discussion when the person in the video/story had shared values and the situation was unusual. They especially liked the video with the blacksmith in Minneapolis because we live in Minnesota and some people had heard about the community center. Another video they really related to was the chef – many many people around here grow gardens and have their own varieties of different types of vegetables and fruit and they enjoyed hearing his story of participating in everything from farm to plate. We haven’t needed to supplement with other videos — sometimes someone will remember something they’ve seen before and I’ll find it and put a link on the Facebook event afterward so those who are interested can go and watch it. One thing my patrons have asked for is captioning on the videos. We have speakers, but it can still be hard to hear their voices sometimes.
