Library adds webcam for military families
The Marshall County Library in Holly Springs announces a webcam and a Skpe account have been acquired for the library system.
One of the intended uses for the camera is access for military families, who might not have their own equipment, to be able to book a time for a video chat with their service members overseas. The webcam is an external one so that it can be passed around to different people.
Access would be free to the patrons, and could be booked with the following limitations – the scheduled time must be during regular library hours; there must be quiet space available, i.e. the meeting room when no other use is reserved; appropriate behavior will be expected during the visit; the patron will be responsible for all the equipment used during the visit.
Library director Diane Schule said, “Other public libraries in the area have been able to offer this service for a while now, and I have wanted the Marshall County Library to be able to do it as well.
“I know we have a lot of military families in Marshall County, and we want to be able to show support and offer what help we can while their service members are away from their families. These families are called on to make a lot of sacrifices, and not everyone is able to have this equipment at home or a high-speed Internet connection.
“If you have a spouse, a child, a grandchild, a fiance, or other family member serving overseas, and you would like to try a video chat with them, call the library at 662-252-3823 to set up a time to call them.
“The soldier would have to get to a webcam and have an account, too, but I think those are made available in the military camps.”
