Cheat Sheet: Create an Event Flyer

1.      Choose a template

LibraryAware has lots of templates to start from. When choosing a template, choose one with the layout you like—colors, fonts, and images can all be changed later!

  • Click Create Item inside the folder you want the item saved in. This will take you to the search bar. You can also click on the Home button at the top to browse recently added templates or use the search bar to find specific templates by typing in keywords like “summer reading” or “storytime.”

  • Use the Refine Results limiters on the left to narrow down your results by organizations, formats, and audience.

  • Once you have found a template you would like to use, click the blue Create button. 
  • Look over our Design Best Practices Strategy page for tips from our graphic designers on how to make your flyer visually appealing!

2. Add your Event Text 

Enter the event details that your patrons need to know!
  • In the existing text boxes, enter your event information
  • If you need additional text boxes, click Text from the left panel and drag over the text style that you want to add
  • Highlight your text to change the font, size, or color
  • Move or delete any of your text boxes

3. Add Images

Get even more creative with your flyer by adjusting the images.
  • Click on the image and click the Swap Image button
