I joined the board for the Friends of the University Park Public Library two years ago. I was new to our town, and knew that it would be a good way to meet other readers in the area. They needed help with email marketing and the occasional edit to the website. Perfect!
The website was, well, a bit outdated. I was happy to hear this year that our board president wanted to give it an update, and I joined the team to revamp it. While we didn’t do the design ourselves (the company that we use to run the site had templates for that) I worked with the team to redo the content navigation, and I did some copywriting and editing to update information and make it easy to find information.
Considering that we finished the work in less than two months, as a team, I think we did pretty well. The site has a much better aesthetic, is mobile-friendly, and shares lots of images of our team and the programming we do for the Friends and the library.
Take a look at the new website and judge for yourself!
