Help improve signage in Hackney Libraries

“Dear colleagues

 Hackney Library Services is currently working on a project to improve the signage and way finding across all Hackney Libraries. 


We are working with an interior design company to create a Design Guide for all signage within Hackney’s libraries. We are keen that this is accessible to disabled people, so we are keen to get input from a range of disabled people.


Please e-mail to let me know if you would be interested in attending a focus group to discuss this.


Best wishes

  • Community - particularly early interventions and charities that help young and/or disadvantaged people achieve their potential.
  • Education - particularly initiatives that improve education outcomes for the disadvantaged, from early years through to transition to work.
  • Health - including disability, palliative care and centres of excellence involved in ground-breaking research and treatments to address chronic illness (with a particular focus on investment in specialist equipment).
