The Signage Workshop is offered annually so CKLS libraries have an opportunity to create signs for their library. Gail Santy, Bev Cross, and Diedre Mapes will help you create a wonderful collection of signs for your library. Library signage is much like doing dishes or laundry – the job is never done! Shabby signs need to be replaced. Perhaps you have rearranged your library and need signs to reflect current locations or maybe it is time to update the color scheme in your library and want an inexpensive way to try on a new color.

At this workshop you will learn how to:

  • Quickly and easily create signs of all sizes with Microsoft Publisher.
  • Current best practices for do-it-yourself signage.

If this is your first time to attend the Signage Workshop, there is homework to be done. Use the Signage Homework document to determine your library signage needs. As always, if you have any questions, please contact Gail Santy at CKLS.

Registration limited to 10 participants

Registration Deadline: July 16, 2015. CKLS will purchase and provide supplies, you must register for this workshop.
