Seattle Public Library Seeking Public Input On New Logo And Name Change

Logo treatments
three proposed new logos

The Seattle Public Library is asking the public for comments on a proposed new logo and name change funded from The Seattle Public Library Foundation. 

The public is invited to see and comment on the overall brand statement and changes and information is also available in all Library locations, including the NE Branch Library (6801 35th Avenue NE). 

Comments will be collected through 5pm, Sunday, October 11. The Library Board will be making a final decision on Wednesday, Oct. 28th.

City Librarian Marcellus Turner said
The Seattle Public Library is about books, but we are so much more.  An updated look and name will better reflect what our Library system is today – active community hubs where residents learn, grow and gather throughout their lives. Our libraries are where students get homework help, the unemployed find career assistance, and those without Internet access can use a computer or our free Wi-Fi. They also are where residents meet for candidate forums, author programs, educational workshops, films and even to watch Seahawks playoff games.

Local design agency, Hornall Anderson, has proposed changing the name of The Seattle Public Library to “Seattle Public Libraries” and has developed three potential logo designs and concepts,  emphasizing the Library as empowering individuals through knowledge and experiences and making "our community ‘stronger together,’ ” designer Halsey said.

The Library Board will be making a final decision on Wednesday, Oct. 28th.
