On Monday, June 16, 2014, join SEGD Boston for an educational event!

Learn about the new wayfinding program and take a tour including the amazing art & architecture at the Boston Public Library’s Central Library in historic Copley Square. This event will be open to the public, so forward to friends and colleagues!

Refreshments sponsored by APCO Signs.

Speakers: Bob Lowe and Lauren Haggerty of Arrowstreet Graphic Design, Nathan Hall of APCO Signs

Special Instructions: Please use the McKim Entrance (on Dartmouth Street, directly across from Copley Square). An accessible entrance is available at 700 Boylston Street (Johnson Building Entrance). As this is an event about wayfinding within the Library, we’re deliberately witholding additional information as to the room’s location. Here’s hoping you find the room quickly and easily!
