What are first, second, and third person narratives, and which is the least common?
Each of these narrative types refers to who is telling the story, and about whom. First person narratives are told by the characters, using "I" sentences. Second person narratives (the least common) are told to the reader, using the pronoun "you" instead. To tell a story in the third person, describe the characters as if viewing from the outside, using names and pronouns such as "she" or "he" or "they" when necessary.

What are some ways in which library services have changed since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic?
Previously, there was an emphasis on in-person services when it came to what libraries were providing. There were few, if any, distance services offered. Now, however, libraries are offering an array of distance services, from virtual storytimes to take-and-make craft kits. There have been difficulties with access in some cases, however, due to certain patrons having relied on the library for their internet access. This means that some people are not able to access the online services that the libraries are offering. Some libraries are combating this by offering wifi hotspots for checkout by their patrons. This enables those patrons to more readily and affordably access the internet, as well as library programming.

What is POV in a film context?
POV, or Point of View, represents the perspective from which we as the audience are viewing the action. The term "POV shot" is typically shorthand for one where the camera is standing in for one of the characters, and we are seeing the action through their eyes.
