In this time of social distancing, video conferencing services like Zoom, GoToMeeting, and Microsoft Teams have become extremely popular for work meetings, hangouts with friends, and even talk-show interviews.
Zoom specifically has a feature where you can add a custom virtual background to appear as if you're somewhere fun, interesting, or exciting rather than your poorly lit and cluttered bedroom. (Here are instructions for adding a custom background on Zoom.)
To help you feel a little more connected to the Library while it's closed, we wanted to provide some pictures from inside the Library that you can use as background images for your computer or virtual meetings. See below for a few of our favorites, along with a way to take a virtual tour of the building using Google Maps.
(If you do use any of the images, don't forget to let us know on social media so we can see them in action!)
