Take a Stroll Around the Library

I had a great time this year at NeCessary KnowLedge.  I learned a lot from Gail Santy who presented on the importance of signage in our libraries.  She had many examples of torn signs, dated signs, and generally not-so-great signage.  You know the sign, the one that has been posted on the door for the last three years and has more tape on it than paper.   You know the sign, the one that says the library is closed for Veterans Day and its now after Thanksgiving.  Gail also showed us several examples of good signage.  The sign that is helpful to patrons, relevant, and attractive.  To read Gail’s handout, go to Event Handouts and click on Signage Hands On.  Maybe it’s time to take a stroll around the library.
