What is Zoom?

Zoom is the most popular video and audio conferencing tool that public libraries are using to provide programs for our communities.

It has become a staple for web conferencing because of it’s easy to use features. You can use it on a computer, smartphone, or tablet to participate in free library programs. You do not need to create an account to use Zoom.

How do I participate in Library programs?

When you register for a program on our event calendar, you will receive an email with a link to the program. Open that email, click the link, and you’re in!

Some programs will be “Webinars,” meaning only the presenter can speak. Participants are not on video and are limited to using the chat box. Questions can be submitted via the chat box.

Privacy and Security

Using video and/or your device’s microphone is not required for library programs. The Library, presenters, and patrons are not allowed to record programs or images of participants.

You are not required to create an account with Zoom to participate in library programs:

  • If you choose not to create an account, you will need to download Zoom.
  • If you prefer not to download Zoom, you can use the web version. This will require you to create an account.
