A few weeks ago we had the wonderful opportunity to host a winter installment of our popular tween summer program, Hack The Library. Entering in its third year, Hack is a series of labs centered around digital creation in video, photography and music. Enabling kids with the open source, free and affordable tools to create digital work.
Winter Hack took place on Thursday, February 22 and Friday, February 23 during winter recess and focused specifically on video production. The lab was taught by long time HACK teaching artist film-maker and music video director, Zia Anger. Throughout the two days participants between the ages of 8-15, learned how to create gifs, edit using imovie, storyboard and film using a camera. The intention behind the program was to allow participants to pinpoint the media they chose to consume and analyze why they like it and what about it they themselves with the long term goal to empower them to continuously create their own work.
Hudson Area Library’s Tween Advisory Council, is a new committee made up of youth (ages 8-12) who take on a leadership role in creating and hosting library events and workshops for their peers.
