Looking for a simple way to get the word out? We just created a new template for Libraries Transform table tents. The image fits an 8.5" x 11" sheet which prints two table tents. Add your local message to the back, cut, fold and place around the community to increase awareness. If you don't have access to publishing software, try uploading the image to Canva, free online graphic design software suite. One library has already used the "Because librarians know information is the best medicine for healthcare questions" message in the cafeteria at their local hospital. Please share your ideas for using these table tents, and let us know if you have trouble using the template, or if you see a way we can improve it. Do you have an idea for a new Libraries Transform tool? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
