Politeness Allowed at Your Library

Politeness Allowed at Your Library

Originally uploaded by Buckham Memorial Library in Faribault.

In the library world, negative signage is all too common. Don’t do this. Don’t sit there. No (fill in the blank) allowed.

The Buckham Memorial Library in Faribault, Minnesota is trying to change their corner of the world with a new signage campaign. Library Director Renee Lowery explains, “We’re trying a new campaign, taking down all of our “No” signs and replacing them with one that explains “We promise not to shush you if you promise to be considerate of your fellow library users.” ”

How fabulous.
