Our library enjoyed the “Tradition” theme with coach Bob Boyer and the “Transformation” videos about Heather Doyle’s blacksmithing program. Our patrons could relate to the characters in the Bob Boyer video because we are from a small community that places a high value on football. We found the central people in the videos likable and engaging. We appreciated that they came from different backgrounds and were different ages. Seeing the characters widsom and STEM in everyday life was engaging. Heather Doyle was a fabulous and inspiring example of how a person can use their interests to improve life for others in their community. We enjoyed watching them do things that were fun to watch and interesting, leading us to feel emotionally invested in the stories.
I appreciate that in the video “Inside the Pushing the Limits Videos Story Structure”, Mark Axton reminded us that people in our community are doing fascinating things and would love to talk about them. I am going to be thinking about who we could bring in from our community to lead a program or give a talk.
