Cultural Weeding:

Challenging Library Design, Collection, Signage & Image

with Kevin Hennah

Raeco® are proud to sponsor Library Specialist Kevin Hennah to deliver his latest workshop 'Cultural Weeding' to our Victorian customers.  In an information-rich day, he will challenge traditional ideas on library design, layout and promotion as well as showcase the most innovative initiatives he has come across while visiting over 1000 libraries both locally and internationally.

Kevin Hennah has contributed to the design of dozens of libraries internationally and inspired hundreds of makeovers at all budget-levels. He has also helped many clients achieve a significant increase in loans by creating what he refers to as the 'post-internet library' - a level playing ground between print and online resources.
