Library Live Streaming Kits

Welcome to the Georgia Public Library Service (GPLS) Library Live Streaming Kits page.

The GPLS Library Live Streaming Kits were expertly crafted and hand put together in an effort to provide Georgia's public libraries with an all-in-one kit of the latest technology to live stream everything from classes, new library location openings, special events, story times, and more!

The kits can be used for staff and patron training, programming, and promoting your library.

GPLS has provided a series of tutorial videos to help guide your libraries to become experts at live streaming, audio and video recording, and editing. Below is a breakdown of all of materials in the kit, how-to videos for streaming, recording audio, editing, and a frequently asked questions section.
