Today is the 15th anniversary of the first YouTube video upload. Fifteen years!

To help celebrate this technology during National Library Week, we’re sharing videos YOU can watch on YouTube from our favorite local library service, the Door County Library system.

Door County Library playlists:

Lectures – learn about local spring herbs, tips for raising chickens and ducks in your backyard, literacy lessons, and more

Door County Reads – covers author events from 2018 through 2020, including the most recent presentation by Leif Enger at Sturgeon Bay High School

Children & Family Programs – Looking for something more wholesome for the little ones to watch? Follow along with fun songs, quick crafts, origami, and even a magic show!

Digital Services – a sure-to-grow play list, learn how to use Hoopla to borrow books and movies digitally

Virtual Book Discussions – the library isn’t holding live book discussions but you can still join virtual chats and view previous discussions

If you’re a member of the Door County Library, you have access to digital materials on OverDrive and Libby. Learn how to use these apps and experience the joy of our local libraries at home:
