I’ve always wondered why there isn’t more signage in library restrooms. Libraries can take advantage of captive audiences by regularly updating signage on the back of stall doors and above urinals. Many people don’t really even like to think or talk about this, but it’s a great way to promote your library’s upcoming events, book clubs, and other library-related programs.
Remember these tips when creating restroom signage:
- Use eye-catching graphics
- Don’t use too much verbiage
- For calendars of events, remember to update weekly or monthly
- Update restroom signage prior to opening or after closing
- Update the staff restrooms as well as the public restrooms
- Use acrylic sign holders with suction cups so they can periodically be removed and cleaned
- Always use your library’s logo and branding
- Try to stick with your library’s brand color scheme
