A librarian with a photography background created a program at the Mid-Manhattan branch of the New York Public Library providing head-shots to patrons for use online. Many of the library's patrons are homeless, elderly, or simply lack access to digital cameras and the knowledge to use them. Picture Yourself Online! has provided over 121 patrons with a professional quality digital head-shot which they can use as a profile picture on social media and job seeking sites, add to their resume, or simply share with friends and family.
