Excerpt: The opening of a new Cedar Rapids Public Library might be a couple of years out, but the excitement is starting now with the launch later this month of a new website and logo designed to resemble the future facility’s unique architecture.
“We wanted to create a brand and a logo that reflect a more modern library and relate to the building itself,” said library spokeswoman Amber Mussman.
As for the new website — which will debut along with the new logo on Aug. 19 — officials hope it will become a virtual library branch. With user-friendly portals allowing patrons to check out electronic materials, browse the stock and hold books, the new site will provide a glimpse into the upgrades and convenience of the future library, Mussman said.
