We're no exception, of course—Monroe County Public Library has our own awesome collection of "things" for checkout. Borrow these on your next visit.

In Level Up, you can choose from our props, find images to add on top of (or behind) your video footage, and even incorporate something you've brought from home into the perfect Father's Day greeting.
