THE BASICS OF
You need a computer, a smart phone, a tablet, or a laptop to join a meeting
Any of these devices must have an internet connection. Most have cameras, but if you don’t have one you can enter the meeting without a camera, but no-one will be able to see you or hear you. (But you can watch & hear)
It is easier to use Zoom if you install a Zoom App on your device. It is free—no charge.
For iPhones or iPads (Apple) install the free Zoom App from the App Store. (You will probably need your Apple ID and password to install.)
For Android tablets and phones, install the free Zoom app from the Play Store.
For Kindle Fire tablets, install the free Zoom app from the Amazon Appstore
If you want to install on your desktop computer go to ZOOM.US This takes you to the Zoom homepage. In the upper right-hand corner, you will see an orange button saying, “Join up for Free”. Hit that and follow the instructions all the way thru. Then the Zoom Icon should appear on your Computer desktop for future use.
NOTE: It is possible to join meetings without installing the Zoom App, but it is a bit trickier. (Essentially you go to ZOOM.US homepage and hit the “Join a Meeting” button & follow instructions.)
JOINING A MEETING
I will send you an invitation by email. It will look something like this: (example only)
Joe Gramm is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
Topic: Classic Films with a Twist
Time: Jul 11, 2020 01:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Join Zoom Meeting
Meeting ID: 726 1705 6654
You will need to copy the Meeting ID number and the Password. (or print the invite out to refer to when you need it)
On the day and time of the meeting you open the Zoom icon on your desktop. (You can go in a bit early or late. You don’t have to go in on the dot at 1:30 pm)
When you open it, you will see “Join a Meeting” Hit that button and it will ask you to enter Meeting ID. (ignore “or personal link name”). Enter the ID on the invitation (in example above the Meeting ID is 726 1705 6654)
That will take you to a second page. Somewhere on that page it will have a space to enter the Password. (Example above: 5MJCij) The password IS case sensitive.
When you enter it, you will be in the waiting room of the meeting until I let you into the meeting. If you are too early and I haven’t started yet, don’t worry about it. Just wait.
Once you are in, you may have to hit the Camera Icon on your page to turn on your camera. (It will have a red line through the picture of the camera meaning your camera isn’t on. Just hit that icon with your mouse).
THAT’S IT. Really quite simple. You can leave the meeting at any time or at the end I will close the meeting for all.
Classic Movies with a "Twist"
Dear Movie Lovers,
I think some of you must miss CLASSIC FILMS WITH A TWIST as much as I miss hosting the films and leading the discussions. It looks like it’s going to be a while before we can do it again.
In the meantime, I have come up with an idea to keep our group together. I am sending an invitation out to all Friends for whom we have email addresses to join me in a ZOOM meeting on Thursday, August 6 at 1:30 pm. The meeting will be very informal and short. (The free Zoom app only allows 40 minutes).
Many of you may already have taken part in ZOOM meetings and know what to do. For those of you who are new to it, you may find simple (I hope) instructions on the left side of this webpage on how to use Zoom.
Unfortunately, it’s impossible to run a movie on Zoom, but I will be talking to you about the possibility of using our library’s Hoopla system for a future Zoom meeting. We wouldn’t be able to watch together, but we can all watch the same movie and discuss it after. I’m excited about that idea. Hope you are too!
Your Pal, Joe Gramm, the Movie Man
First Thursdays: 1:30 p.m.
We hope to resume the schedule of Classic
Films With a Twist once the Library reopens for public meetings.
