11. Description of Example and Its Use in the Library:
With photos, images, text, music, and special effects, a promotional video can be made to entice parents of young children to attend story times, as in my example, or it can promote other library outreach programs, certain books, collections, or events. 
12. Description of How the Example Capitalizes on the Tool's Potential:
 This promotional video stimulates both the auditory and visual senses, grabbing the viewer's attention and making it more memorable and less expensive than a flyer. It is a modern approach, has upbeat music, utilizes bright colors, and contains characters and movement that young children and their parents will enjoy.
