Libraries Aotearoa has been received with enthusiasm and excitement but there are some common themes that keep popping up:
- This is great but when can I have it for my library? The enthusiasm caught us off guard but we want this to be accessible for everyone. We'll be working on bringing out brand guidelines in late October post the LIANZA conference.
- I love it but it doesn't feel like the images reflect the diversity of the community I work in. We've taken this on board and will adjust as we begin to role out additional imagery.
- What are the community engagement packs? These serve two purposes - they will help you communicate your value to your community, and will also assist us in collecting information about what you're up to (programmes being run / individuals being served). This will let us tell the story of libraries at both the national and local levels. We hope to have these in your hands soon!
- I want the t-shirt! We were surprised how many people did! These are now available for sale here and will soon also be available in black.
