This is a simple and very popular green screen app.

Touchcast Honorable Mention 

This video recording and editing app is amazing. You can use the app with or without a green screen. The amount of simple yet brilliant effects are transformative. You can turn out a basic video with some cool effects rapidly. The app has features that you would expect to see in a higher-end software program. The amount of amazing feature is truly awesome.

There are many ways to make a green screen. You can hang a large curtain, paint a wall green, or use a large sheet of plywood. In a library where the masses gather, it is a good idea to have a green screen that is aesthetically pleasing. You probably do not want walls that do not match or a sheet of plywood. To get started you might want to try an inexpensive King-sized sheet. If this is something that becomes a popular part of the library, then you should strongly consider a green curtain or backdrop.
