New Logo

The Acton Public Library has a new logo! For a few years we have been discussing creating a new logo for the library that symbolizes our place in the community. We want to be a friendly and welcoming place for the whole community. Our previous logo was a bit outdated and hard to format as it was only an image and not a formattable, Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file. We kept with the yellow and blue colors of Old Saybrook and if you look you might be able to see the beacon at the center of the P. We hope this becomes a recognizable symbol of a welcoming and fun place, and a Beacon to Ideas.

Beacon Definition: 1. a lighthouse or other signal for guidance. 2. a source of light or inspiration.
