4 Ways to Use Canva in your library

4 Ways to Use Canva in your library | School Librarian In Action @ Scoop It! | Scoop.it

Canva is an easy to use, free graphic design tool that allows users to quickly build beautiful graphics. It does have extra fancy paid elements, but it’s easy to make beautiful graphics without using them. You can customize colors and fonts, add all sorts of clip-art like elements, and even upload your own photos. It doesn’t give you as much control as a desktop publishing or photo editing program, but it’s easy to use and can save you a lot of time.

Career Spotlight: What I Do as a Librarian

Career Spotlight: What I Do as a Librarian | School Librarian In Action @ Scoop It! | Scoop.it
It takes more than a creaky book cart and reading glasses to become a librarian. Rather, librarians often have a substantial education in their field, which itself is full of variety. From academia to public libraries and archives, being a librarian entails much more than shelving and shushing.

The Lemony Snicket Prize for Noble Librarians Faced With Adversity | Awards & Grants

The Lemony Snicket Prize for Noble Librarians Faced With Adversity | Awards & Grants | School Librarian In Action @ Scoop It! | Scoop.it
About the The Lemony Snicket Prize for Noble Librarians Faced With Adversity It is of the opinion of Lemony Snicket, author, reader, and alleged malcontent, that librarians have suffered enough. Therefore he is establishing an annual prize honoring a librarian who has faced adversity with integrity and dignity intact. The prize will be a generous amount of cash from Mr. Snicket's disreputable gains, along with an odd, symbolic object from his private stash, and a certificate, which may or may not be suitable for framing. It is Mr. Snicket's hope, and the ALA's, that the Snicket Prize will remind readers everywhere of the joyous importance of librarians and the trouble that is all too frequently unleashed upon them.
