Hanover, New Hampshire
Donor Recognition Exhibit
As part of a major expansion and renovation project that included the creation of a children’s wing, the Howe Library requested an environmental graphics program unusually broad in scope for a town library. In addition to an exterior clock face and main ID sign, interior components included donor recognition, wayfinding and regulatory signage, bookcase flags, special-event kiosks, an archival donor-plaque mural, Children’s Room entry sculpture, and a lobby mural.
The Howe Library faced the challenge of finding a new home for twenty donor plaques displaced from the reconfigured spaces of its 2005 renovation project and its original Wheelock House headquarters. With an uninterrupted wall available in one of the Library’s reading rooms, CGD responded with a permanent exhibit mural that juxtaposed the donor panels with a chronology of images drawn from the Library’s archives.
