The Spokane Public Library got a shout-out from the Huffington Post last month for its efforts to stay relevant in the digital age.

The library earned a spot on the "Top 5 Libraries that Go Beyond Books" list for its community camera program, which allows aspiring filmmakers to check out high-definition video cameras.

The program started after the library received a federal stimulus grant to provide video equipment. Cameras, microphones, cables and other equipment can be reserved through the circulation desk at least 48 hours in advance.

The library also has Adobe Creative Suite software, including Photoshop and InDesign, available at the Downtown library computer lab.
