The Eldersburg branch of the Carroll County Public Library invites everyone to be part of the EPIC YouTube program this Aug. 31, where you will have the opportunity to create your own YouTube channel and learn how to create and promote your own brand.

Throughout the one-hour program, the fifth- through eighth-graders participating will take the time to create their own banner and logo and learn how to post a video on YouTube.


There will also be an introduction to the rules of YouTube and how to get subscribers for your channel.

The participants will also learn how to make game recordings and how to export them into your channel. Also, those who participated in the EPIC Animation class will be able to learn how to export those cartoons as well.

All of the attendees must bring a Gmail address to class, since YouTube is connected to Gmail and it is required to start the channel.

All attendees need to register. You may register today by contacting the library at 410-386-4488.

The program starts at 10 a.m. and it is targeted to kids from ages 10 to 14.
