Kimbel Library Instructional Videos

An actor, a script-writer and a videographer walk into a library… and produce the best instructional videos ever.

Topic: Library Instruction

That is, unless you enlist the help of 3 funny guys a puppet, a whiteboard and a camera. Then you get not only comedy gold, but you might also learn something too.

Speaking of comedy’s power to make sense, keep an eye on Baratunde’s Cultivated Wit.┬áHe’s on to something.
