For the past two years my colleague Rue Herbert has presented a program on the VRT Notable
Videos for Adults at our Florida Library Association's Annual Conference and they have both been
hugely successful. She describes the process, shows parts of the videos, solicits nominations, ans
we serve the popcorn. Maybe others could also present such programs.
