New Logo

Robin Newell, director of the Emporia Public Library, is pleased to announce that a new logo has been selected for the library. After over a year of thought and consideration working with many groups, several logos were developed in collaboration with IM Design Group and the new logo was chosen. Newell states “Saying goodbye to the old library logo was tricky... it's a part of our culture, it's on our cards, and in our hearts and minds. It's a testimony of our story and a giant part of our history. But as we look towards our 150th anniversary celebration in 2019 we have our gaze aimed at the future and we're in LOVE with our new logo”. The new colorful logo will be the library’s calling card to the community as the library seeks to continue to make a positive impact in Emporia and Lyon County.
