To make the notes, create the text on your computer, then print them on colored paper, four to a sheet. Pale colors (pink, yellow, green, or blue) work best. After printing, cut the paper in quarters. When you need to use the note, just wipe a glue stick across the top. (You could probably print them on 3-M’s PostIt© 8-1/2x11 paper, but this way you can use them as regular notes if they don’t need to be sticky.)
She suggests printing the name of your library, address, location, phone number, and hours. I would add your name, email, and website. Also, your logo and/or motto. You can request a free Word template by email from firstname.lastname@example.org (a graphics company—I haven’t tried this). Barth ends her article, “These notes get a lot of attention. Enjoy your creativity and get your message out!” Amen.
