There’s a new look at the Westport Public Library.

The library unveiled its new look in its January-February newsletter reaching Westporters today. The newsletter reflects the updated graphics and soon the library will unveil the new look on its website, according to director Maxine Bleiweis.
But in a column in the newsletter, she says the graphics are only part of the story.
“The expression ‘the more things change, the more things stay the same’ is proving true at the Westport Public Library,” she writes.
“At the same time that we’ve changed the design of our logo, website, and newsletter, and introduced new services, you’ll find the same personalized attention, warm welcome, and top notch selections of books and DVDs.”

She said changes have extended to the library’s cafe where there is a new range of “local, healthy and/or organic selections, including freshly made scones, special tea for a January pick-me-up, and warm drinks such as hot cider, cocoa, and of course, our wide range of coffees.”
Blewiweis said she is challenging herself to take advantage of some of the new opportunities at the library, including checking out a Kindle for travelers, learning a new language through the library website such as Arabic or Hindi, and trying out an iPad.

Sorry, but what a boring new logo, in my opinion! I’ve always used the Westport Public Library logo as an example of one of the most creative, memorable, good-looking logos. The new wpl logo? It could be a commercial logo for anywhere. Hope that others like it better than I do! Did Miggs Burroughs do the new logo (since he did the memorable one)? I can’t believe he did.
