NewsVroom to bring digital-first journalism to Red Land Community Library

NewsVroomPre-teens and teens in York County — do you love to write? Tell stories? Ask questions? Are you savvy on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram?

Join York Daily Record/Sunday News journalists from 2 to 3 p.m. July 11 at Red Land Community Library to talk about what it means to be a digital-first journalist. We’ll focus on some of the tools we use: our smartphones and iPads, social media like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and video apps like Tout.

We’ll also focus on mobile journalism and ways we get out of the office and into the community, plus the basics of interviews and how to brainstorm the right questions.

The program is part of York County Libraries’ summer reading program, and the NewsVroom’s Year at the York County Libraries. Students from 10 to 18 years are welcome, and can call the library at 717-938-5599 to register.

What’s on tap for August? Folks of all ages are welcome to join us at Kaltreider-Benfer Library in Red Lion for a session on best blogging practices — how to build a blog, reach your audience, and attract new readers. From 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Aug. 12, we welcome community members to join us with questions, ideas and comments as we detail what has worked (or not worked) for our newsroom blogs at yorkblog.com — and how you can adapt those practices. Stay tuned for details!
