Logo to help drive direction for Sheffield Library

Submitted Photo New logo for the Sheffield Township Library.

Sometimes a logo is just a logo.

But for the Sheffield Township Library, the first logo in its 100-year history details its direction for the future.

“The new logo is rooted in the history of libraries, but is better suited for the continued growth of the library and the community it serves,” Christine Porter, the library’s director said.

The design centers around an open book.

“But books are just the beginning,” she said. “The pages open to all of the resources and possibilities that the library provides to the community — all of the things that bring this library to life.

She also highlighted the programs, services and collection “that go far beyond traditional media.

“It also includes our public space, used for community collaboration, ideas and research, entertainment, events, and so much more,” she said. “Our space, services, and collections are constantly evolving to meet the needs of our community.”

Porter said the library’s website is also expected to undergo a “facelift in the coming weeks.

Jeff Eggleston did the design for the library.

Porter stressed that the design is a “representation of the library’s 100-year legacy and serves as an invitation to all members of the community to come and explore what we have to offer.”
