So, what do you need? First things first: an app!

The library uses an app called Green Screen by Do Ink for our iPad, and it costs $4.99.

There are many free green screen apps out there for different devices, so don’t feel that you must use the same as us! Check your device’s app store to see what’s available for you.

Second thing you need: something green!

The library uses green plastic tablecloths for our green screen programs, which you can easily find at a dollar store or grocery store for a low cost.

We’ve made some instructions for our app, and you can find them right here!

But what about backgrounds?

Do a web search for your favorite movies and games, and see what you can find! Using “screenshot” or “wallpaper” in the search will help bring up backgrounds that will work for photos.

If you decide to make your own green screen, take a picture and send it to

We’ll enter you in a raffle to win a great prize!
