The Albany Public Library Foundation is seeking a volunteer to help with producing social media graphics.

APL Foundation works to enhance and strengthen the programs of the Albany Public Library. We do that most importantly by raising money for Library programs. We use Social Media to announce events - and that works great. We also post news about programs and our fundraising appeals, and those don't work so great. It seems that that no one reads social media posts if there isn't an image, video, or gif. We are a group of dedicated readers and writers and lovers of the Library. We are looking for someone who likes to play with social media graphics to help us tell stories, so we can see if that increases our social media engagement.

Volunteers would be added to our Canva team.
Canva is a software-service website that makes it easy to generate social media graphics, and has formats optimized for each platform (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.)

Volunteers can try this out for a week and deliver one image, or stick around for a few months to develop an idea or story.

Interested volunteers should send an email with a brief introduction.
