Podcasting Opportunities for Teens at the Library

Last Monday, NOPL @ N. Syracuse hosted a Teen Podcasting Workshop to assist teens who’d like to record audio programs to the Internet. For those who missed it, there are two more podcasting classes.

NOPL @ Brewerton: Monday, November 18, at 4pm

NOPL @ Cicero: Monday, December 9, at 4pm

Podcasts are free audio shows, similar to radio shows, but available to listen to anytime. In fact, some radio shows, like This American Life and All Things Considered, have podcasts that feature previous episodes. There are podcasts that focus on news, music, film, and comedy. There are tons of educational podcasts, where hosts teach a new language or a missed part of history.

The NOPL libraries, thanks to a New York State 2013 Library Cultural Programming Grant (made possible by Senator John DeFrancisco), have been given podcasting equipment for patrons to use. This includes a laptop computer and a professional microphone. Patrons at all three libraries (Brewerton, Cicero, and North Syracuse) will be able to check-out the podcasting equipment (as well as a study room to record) beginning in early 2014.

Chris Suppa, a patron of NOPL @ North Syracuse and member of the Teen Advisory Board, attended the first podcasting workshop. He has friends who record You Tube videos and is interested in starting a Teen Advisory Board podcast.  During the workshop, he learned the basics of recording with Audacity (a free audio editing program) and publishing using SoundCloud.

The workshops offer plenty of advice on how to make a good podcast, here’s a few examples:

Start short – make your podcast short in length at first. Just like how a novelist might begin with short stories, or a director may start with short films, spend the first few episodes learning your craft. Once you become comfortable broadcasting, extend the length.

Wear headphones – this is a good way to figure out how you sound (too loud, too quiet), and assists mixing your voice with other sounds (other participants, sound effects, instruments, background noise).

Bring a notepad with you – before recording, create a general outline of your discussion (as well as questions, random thoughts, jokes, etc.) Use the notepad during recording to keep track of what you have recorded to make editing easier.

Why Summer Reading?

Girl Reading in SchoolSummer vacation is a great time to be a kid. It is great to have time to relax and hang out, with friends and family, at home and in the sun.  It is also important to keep your kid’s reading skills fresh over the next three months. According to the National Summer Learning Association, “at best, students show little or no academic growth over summer. At worst, students lose one to three months of learning.” Summer Reading can go a long way to minimize summer learning loss and can even improve a child’s reading skills. Read the full article.

Summer Reading Events

There are dozens of events for children and teens to enjoy this summer at the NOPL Libraries. Events include Story Times, arts & crafts, visits by magicians, puppeteers, storytellers, The MOST, The Rosamond Gifford Zoo, and more. We are also excited to introduce two new clubs, Maker Club and the Junior Gardeners, as well as the continuation of Lego Club, Teen Advisory Board, and Anime Club!
