Langley library offers some festive tech fun

The latest technological event at the local public library is a green screen Christmas photo shoot.

From 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, people can stop by the Muriel Arnason Library at 20338 65th Ave., to see how green screens work.

Green screens have been used for a long time in film and TV work. People can be photographed in front of the green background and using technology, a different scene can be put behind them. At the library event Dec. 12, people can choose the holiday scene and staff will email them a photo.

This free event is open to all ages, and there will be hot chocolate, cookies and holiday music.

People who get photos in front of the green screen at the holiday fun event on Dec. 12 will have their photos emailed to them by library staff. (Library photo)
