“Imagine Your Story” with Canva: Using Visuals to Enhance and Promote Your Summer Library Program
Would you like to increase engagement with your Summer Library Program? Did you know that Facebook posts with images see more than double the activity than those without? Using Canva, a free and easy-to-use online design tool, we’ll collaboratively create materials you can use for your summer program and beyond. In this workshop we’ll learn how to create visually engaging posts for a variety of social media. Need something more analog? The print options are almost endless and only limited by your imagination. With Canva you can make scratch tickets, game boards, coupons, doorhangers, and much more!
We’ll also have time to share marketing and promotion ideas with each other and explore resources from the MBLC that will help you imagine your library’s story, including ready-made social media posts and new Bruins materials.
At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
- Identify and access the CSLP Rules of Use, approved fonts, artwork, and other summer related images;
- Design materials to help you engage with your community;
- Implement ideas from instructors and fellow participants to help market your program.
