Friends & Foundation of Albany Public Library

  • 18 people are interested

The Friend of Albany Public Library and Albany Public Library Foundation seek volunteers to help with producing social media graphics for our Annual Appeal, advocacy campaigns, and event promotions.

No one reads social media posts if there isn't an image, video, or gif. The Friends and Foundation are a group of wordsmiths, dedicated readers and writers. We are looking for other lovers of the library who likes to play with graphics, gifs, and memes to help us tell stories that will catch the attention of our social media followers.

Volunteers can try this out for a week and deliver one image, or stick around for 8-12 weeks to develop an idea or story. We welcome graphic design instructors from local colleges to take turn this into a class assignment.

Interested volunteers should send an email with a brief introduction.
