Using an Apple TV on The 2nd Floor of the Chattanooga Public Library

Here’s one of the neat little things we’re testing out on The 2nd Floor of the Chattanooga Public Library: using an Apple TV/Projector/iPad/blank wall combination to stream random things while the library is open.

This morning, we used our streaming service Hoopla to show folks just how awesome your library card can be.  Then we listened to some Daft Punk for a bit and finally switched it over to a complete walk through of The Legend of Zelda which is running as we speak.

Why are we doing this?  We’ve got a lot of wall space on The 2nd Floor and more importantly it starts conversations among our library guests and our staff.  When our staff shares an example of a library service that we offer of something that interests us personally we open up the library to some great conversations.  In those conversations, we make connections with our community. These connections make our place in the community stronger.

  1. Hi Justin,

    I was just wondering if you’ve experienced any technical issues with your Apple TV – connectivity or otherwise. My library has experienced nothing but trouble when it comes to our Apple TV/projector/iPad set-up!

  2. Hey Katherine,
    Aside from the minor hiccup in getting wireless to the iPad/Apple TV, we’ve been pretty lucky. iPad/Apple TV mirroring is what works best for us so that we’re showing exactly what is on the iPad.
