Dress up in your holiday finest and stop by one of five Volusia County Public Library branches for a free green screen holiday photo. Staff will pose families and individuals in front of a green screen and let them choose from a variety of seasonal backgrounds.

Participants may dress festively, wearing any color except green. Warning: If you wear green, your clothes will disappear into the background.

Green screen photography is a process that replaces a solid green background behind the subject with a new background using software images.
