Description

"Libraries are of course full of books, but these days, the technology housed within them is equally important to the many people who use them. We can all check out e-books, utilize services and borrow equipment that we don’t have access to at home. As a starting point, I thought about all these technological offerings and the corresponding icons by which they are signposted. Then, I digitally-traced paper-cut versions (hi-tech rendition of a low-tech technique) of these shapes and icons and placed them within an archetypal building shape. This relationship between high and low tech is further referenced by the use of the font ‘American Typewriter’. Today’s libraries exemplify the way in which the successful employment of technology strengthens, rather than replaces, traditional modes of culture, interaction, and learning. Long live libraries!"

Libraries are at the center of our communities because they support every aspect of our community development. Today's libraries look a lot different than even a decade ago. But while the work librarians do has changed, the reasons haven't. VoteLibraries means that our librarians have the resources they need to connect people to new ideas and to each other in our neighborhoods and around the world.
