Li­brary sig­nage

The Press - - Opinion -

In ex­plain­ing the name of the new cen­tral li­brary, the Christchurch City Coun­cil Head of Li­braries and In­for­ma­tion says the words ‘‘Cen­tral Li­brary’’ will be ‘‘added to both of the wayfind­ing totems lo­cated close to the en­trances’’. Isn’t it odd to use such a sig­nif­i­cant word (totem) from a third lan­guage and cul­ture to de­scribe our wayfind­ing sign­post here?
