Introducing a new Warren-Trumbull County Public Library logo and redesigned website
We are proud to announce the debut of a new library logo and a redesigned website to better reflect all that the library has to offer.
Library service has grown and evolved over the years as we adapt to advances in technology. While books remain at the heart of the library, the new logo also represents the digital world that now connects us with our customers.
In the coming months, you will notice the new logo on library flyers, signs, and brochures. Your library card remains "the smartest card in your wallet," and you can continue to use your current card. Individuals applying for a new library card will receive a slightly redesigned card with the new logo on it beginning this summer.
The process of designing a new library logo began almost a year ago as a collaboration between the W-TCPL and a graphics design class at Youngstown State University. The students also developed a new look for the library website, incorporating the logo's green and blue colors.
The library website address remains the same (www.wtcpl.org) and will soon transition to include the new logo and a simplified design that we hope will help you easily find the information you are looking for. The website adds top and side-bar navigation choices and prominently features the Catalog search box. A billboard-style slideshow on the homepage will highlight new services and events.
Visitors to the website can search the library's online catalog and reserve books, check library hours, utilize free online databases, see the calendar of programs and events, and much more!
The website uses Joomla, an open source software platform. Joomla allows the library's team to customize the site and eliminates the need for costly commercial software.
We hope the redesigned website will be a great tool to help you find the library information you are looking for and to discover some new resources, too!
