Bulletins got a makeover! Not only does it look snazzier, but it's mobile friendly and works better with Google forms. Time to break out the newsgroup signups and book quizzes! Are you having a book fair? You can make a special bulletin for the fair, and add a Google form to easily let patrons and volunteers sign up.

How to Add a Google Form to your Bulletin

  1. Create the Google form you want to include in your bulletin.
  2. Go to Tools > Bulletins and click the icon in the bottom left to create a new board. 
  3. In your finished Google form, click the Send button in the top right. This will open the top window shown on the right.
  4. Click the < > section, then select and copy and HTML show under "Embed HTML."
  5. Paste the HTML into the Bulletin Text box in Alexandria. 
  6. Make sure to click Save when you're done!

Got a more in-depth form to share? Link to them using html: <a href="http://form.url">form name</a>

Bulletins is currently accessed through Tools in Alexandria, but soon Bulletins will be listed under the new Builder section of the Alexandria Makeover

A book fair isn't the only way you could utilize the new bulletin features. 

  • Create bulletins for specific teacher assignments or projects
  • Volunteer sign-ups
  • Track reading challenges for patrons.
  • Help student-run clubs and school teams
  •  Inform your patrons about special events at your library.
  • And more!
