The SC State Library is pleased to offer two great design training sessions for SC public library staff. We'll spend the day discussing the basic principles of design, covering print materials in the morning and web in the afternoon. Sessions are free and lunch will be on your own; however, you must register online at the SC State Library’s events calendar for each session separately. You may register for one or both sessions depending on your interests.

Sessions will take place on Thursday, September 15, 2016 and will be hands-on, so please bring your own device.
