Seattle Public Library seeks comments on proposed name change and new logo

The Seattle Public Library is changing its name – slightly. A rebranding campaign would change it to Seattle Public Libraries. The library is seeking public input on that, as well as three new logo options, through an online survey.

“The Seattle Public Library is about books, but we are so much more,” said City Librarian Marcellus Turner. “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.”

The rebranding information is also available in all library branches. Comments will be collected through 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 11. The Library Board is scheduled to make decisions at its Oct. 28 meeting.
