We need advice on producing a short video explaining our online heritage program and instruction on how to post to specific social media channels for our library patrons to access online.

What We Have In Place
  • Whitman County Heritage is available online to reference photographs. Current displays. Canon VIXIA HF R80 video camera and a Samsung 9+ smartphone for video.
