On May 14th, a group of 23 people met virtually to learn about and play with the features and function of Zoom. Zoom is video conferencing software which has recently skyrocketed in popularity. It is used for work meetings, keeping in touch with family and friends, and more. Even the library’s Writers’ Mill and Owl Book Group are currently taking place via Zoom.

Our Intro to Zoom event was presented in partnership with Washington County Disability, Aging and Veteran Services (DAVS). It covered frequently used features and provided opportunities to practice using these features. There was also plenty of time to ask questions. Resources regarding the content covered during the webinar were provided after the event for future reference.

Since the first event was full and we received such positive feedback about it, another session was scheduled for Thursday, May 28th. Fifteen people were part of the discussion that day.

Participant feedback:

“Thanks – that was very helpful – I learned a lot!”

“Thank you very much for the great intro to Zoom.  I enjoyed it because you made it very easy.”

“The class was very useful.”

“The two presenters were very good, clear, concise and patient with the questions. I feel as though I learned a lot.”

“Thanks for this morning’s session. It answered some questions I’ve had as I’ve tried working with Zooming.”

“The demonstrations and hands-on learning was great. All in all, very well done.”
