Video Library Toolkit

Massachusetts Video Library

The Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners has collaborated with the First Lady of the Commonwealth, Lauren Baker and public libraries across the state to create a video library with fun and educational videos to make home-learning a bit easier for kids and parents.

Here’s a few things to know about the site

Benefits of posting your video to the statewide video library
  • It is easy! If your video is already up somewhere else just email Celeste the link and we’ll add it; or if you’re creating a new video you can upload it right from your device to https://www.mavideolibrary.org/upload/
  • The site gives you a unique URL you can post anywhere.
  • No Advertisements.
  • Each video will be reviewed before it’s posted and it will be professionally transcribed, increasing accessibility.
  • Easy access for residents to more resources.
  • Videos can be sorted by library and by type of activity.
  • Graphics and a press release are available so you can promote the video library.
