Library Logo Contest

As we near the 100th anniversary of the Middletown Township Public Library, the Board of Trustees and Library Administration are exploring new services and fresh ideas that will lead the library for the next 100 years. One area in need of modernizing is the library’s logo. The library has long been a community center that offers so much more than books. The Library Board and Director wish to convey that message with a new logo that embodies the heart of the library and expresses the mission of Middletown Library – to enrich, empower, and educate its community.
The Board of Trustees is pleased to announce the Library Logo Contest. The contest is open to all Middletown students in grades 6 -12. Students are asked to design a new logo that symbolizes the mission of the Middletown Public Library and articulates the true identity of the library as a community center offering opportunities for both education and entertainment. Deadline for submissions will be November 30, 2017. Submissions will be judged by the Library Board of Trustees and one winner will be announced at the December 13, 2017 meeting of the Library Board of Trustees. The winner will receive a $250 prize and community-wide recognition. The new logo will be used on the library’s website, letterhead, flyers, and other library documents.
Artists may submit their designs by mail or email. Paper and digital submissions will be accepted. Digital submissions must be in JPEG format. Submissions will be reviewed in both color and black/white. Please include your name, address, phone number, and email address with your submission. One entry per person. Middletown Township Public Library employees and their families are not eligible. For questions, please contact Kim Rinaldi, Library Director, at (732) 671-3700.
