Miles City Public Library Youth Centers

The Miles City Public Library is currently (Fall 2009) constructing two large areas -- 1800 sq. ft for children and 1000 sq ft for teens. These spaces are located behind the main building. The work began last June and should be completed and open to the public in January of 2010. The $350,000 construction and $100,000 investment for computers, furniture, and other interior items has been paid for by many local donations.

Presented are three stories. The first and second stories have the same script, but different editors. The third is done by the instructor with slightly more detail.

This MCNN story edited by Jamie, Jessica, and Katlyn.

This story edited by Bailee and Cheyenne.

This version adds a few details and is edited by the instructor.

Note: There is an error in the first two stories where the narrator says $1,000 instead of $100,000 was spent on computers, furniture, etc. The student had actually made three takes and corrected the error in the 2nd and 3rd, but the instructor "messed up" and used the 1st. take.

We hope to be back soon

The plan is to have MCNN running again. Students interviewed the staff of the Miles City Public Library about the $450K remodeling project on Friday, Sept. 25th. We hope to have story(ies) posted sometime next week -- although since this will be the first for this crew it will take some time.
