Thing #6 - Online Image Generators - thoughts
I've always loved working with graphic design, so this "thing" was lots of fun for me. I think that the tools listed on the Big Huge Labs site could be used in many, many ways in libraries. Anytime that a library hands out a preprinted piece of paper (bookmarks with hours, lists of themed titles, handouts for programs, etc), there is an opportunity to add visual interest. And these tools can give you professional looking results in a very short time. Making posters or other visual aids for your library takes almost no time with premade templates available. And, if you have enough computers available, you could do lots of crafting programming that ranges from kids looking to make cool art projects to adults that love to craft and scrapbook.
