Maximize Reader Engagement with Video: Streaming video has become a must-have component of the library 

With your patrons replacing DVD and Blu-ray checkouts with streaming services, video is an increasingly important component of serving your community. As a result of new subscription and simultaneous access models, libraries are finding new ways to create 2-3 times more engagement from their readers who also enjoy video.  With creative curation, the promotion of moving stories, educational documentaries, and diverse characters, streaming video offers unique and in-demand content to take your collection into the stratosphere.
