Canva Infographics and More

Canva offers a large variety of tools to help you present data and reports in a visually appealing way. During the third session, we will look at creating unique infographics to use as annual reports, help guides, and promotional materials. The session will touch on other tools, such as websites, graphs, and reports, that can help you share large data in a user-friendly manner. 

While Canva Pro is not required, it is recommended. If your library doesn’t have Canva Pro, it is recommended each library applies for nonprofit or education access to enjoy the benefits of Canva Pro. (For nonprofit access, you may wish to apply through your Friends group.)
