If you've heard the rumblings of a "new library logo" coming to the North Canton Public Library, you've heard correctly.
The library plans to unveil its new logo at a special launch party March 23. Yep, that means you'll have to wait to see the new design.
In fact, the library board has yet to approve a final design submitted by local graphic designer Joe Rozsa, the city's first Entrepreneur in Residence. Board members expressed their interest in the design at Wednesday's North Canton Public Library Board meeting.
Rozsa said the design, which North Canton Patch won't publish until the library gives its OK, would likely adorn library management name tags and staff lanyards. It would also find a home on the library's website and anywhere else you see the current logo.
To keep the suspense, North Canton Patch also won't publish the motto that goes hand in hand with the logo, but we will say it's got a pretty ... worldly ... theme.
"I always try to think of a tagline that will go along with (the design)," Rozsa told the board. "(The logo) came after I decided to call the library card a passport."
Along with the design would come a large sculpture for the front lawn of the library.
Library Director Sandi Lang seemed pleased, saying the design looked "very clean" and would work well in promoting all the different varieties of materials in the library.
Library board members are expected to vote on the design at their next meeting, which is at 4:30 p.m. Nov. 28.
