Great news! The Health Literacy Toolkit posters from the Libraries Transform campaign can now be ordered in 11×17 size.
A little history of the project if you are not familiar:
Designed to increase public awareness of the value, impact, and services provided by libraries and library professionals, the American Library Association’s Libraries Transform campaign ensures there is one clear, energetic voice for our profession, showcasing the transformative nature of today’s libraries and elevating the critical role libraries play in the digital age. Library supporters can join the campaign to access free resources and tools for spreading the word about the value of libraries.
Earlier this year NNLM staff, led by Lydia Collins from MAR, worked with ALA staff members to develop the Health Literacy Toolkit as part of the Libraries Transform campaign. In September NNLM and ALA co-presented a webinar on the campaign (recording available). This week the GMR added a selection of the posters to our Free Training & Educational Materials!
