Newport News, VA – Professional Identification Signs in Local Libraries (Exterio…

Libraries are such fun and entertaining places to visit. There is so much to do; from exploring in the book sections, to joining in an arts and craft hour, to listening to a lecture, using their computers, or doing some serious reference work. Whatever you are there for, libraries always have new and innovative ways to grab your attention. That’s where colorful and ingenious library signage comes into play.

Signs in libraries don’t just say “no talking.” If that’s all there is, visitors will soon try another library. Arguably the most important sign of all for a library is the identification sign.

What is an identification sign?

Identification signs show you what is available. They identify what is right there where you’re standing. Unlike directory signs, which will tell you to go this way or that to find a particular section or department, identification signs point out what is in the current section or department. Designed and installed well, identification signs help create a great customer experience.

Every space in a library has a function, including the bookshelves, directories, section identifiers, and room identifiers. Aimlessly wandering through a library can be fun if you’re not there for any specific purpose, but if you are looking for something, getting lost or not finding what you need can be extremely frustrating. This is especially true if your library is on more than one floor. The massive number of sections, badly identified, can be confusing.

Identification signs for libraries will be a combination of text and images. They may also come in the form of poster signs or color-coded stack signage systems.

In our experience, we think that libraries do well when they adapt the same type of signage often found in modern bookstores. Identification signs that not only identify but entice people to a particular section or grouping are very popular and work exceedingly well.

Through the use of proper library signage, more visitors will find their library experience enjoyable. With all of today’s digital formats, there is the fear of having ‘library anxiety,’ where people don’t want to ask what appears to be a stupid question; if the answer isn’t readily apparent, many people will walk away not finding what they are looking for.

Don’t let this be the prevalent experience in your library. At James River Signs, we can put together a comprehensive identification signage package for you. It will encompass the best of signs for libraries. We know our signs and we know what will work for you. Call us or email us today for your free consultation!
