The GoPro action camera has become very popular because it's fun and easy to use; it produces high quality photos and movies; and it’s versatile. It's known as an action camera because it's often used to film action scenes outdoors, it’s waterproof, and it’s sturdy. It can be used to create short films, to develop stop motion animation, make underwater videos, or take high quality vacation photos. The possibilities are endless, and getting started is as simple as going to the library.
The Toledo Lucas County Public Library has two types of GoPro kits that can be checked out for one week and renewed twice. The GoPro basic kit is available for customers of all ages at the Oregon Branch Library, and contains a GoPro Hero entry level action camera, case, straps, camera housing, microcard, cables, and adapters. The GoPro deluxe kit is available for adult customers only at the King Road Branch Library, and contains a GoPro Hero4 action camera, case, straps, camera housing, microcard, cables, and adapters.
GoPro kits must be checked out and returned to the same library location (inside the building during library hours - do not place this material in the drop box). Talk to a staff member today at King Road, Oregon or Sylvania to reserve the GoPro kit of your choice.
