Chester Library Introduces New Logo During Nat’l Library Week

The Chester Library is pleased to introduce its new logo during National Library week on April 8-14.   The logo’s tagline, “More than books, we’re a community”, reflects the expanding role of libraries and our commitment to help enrich the lives of Chester residents.

The logo was developed as part of the library’s new strategic plan that sets the stage for the operational direction of the library.  Library Director, Lesley Karczewski, explains:  “Books are only the beginning of our story.  As a result of our strategic plan, we are actively working to increase the value of the library to the community.  In addition to taking advantage of our large selection of books and other materials, people visit our library for meetings, to study, attend a program, or relax by the fireplace.   We’re now taking the next step to offer programs and services that help the various communities within Chester.  For example, we’ve recently started outreach to the Hispanic community by visiting St. Lawrence Church after the Sunday Spanish Mass to distribute new library cards and books.  For local businesses, we’ve introduced a new service, Gale Small Business Builder, which helps businesses in planning and optimizing their business or nonprofit.  For seniors, we’re evaluating life-long learning opportunities. These are only a few examples of the many ways we hope to increase our visibility and value within the community.”

Special activities will take place during National Library Week to help celebrate the new logo announcement.   There will be a library open house on Thursday, April 12 from 10 am – 5 pm.  Stop by for refreshments and find out all our library has to offer.  You’ll also receive a small gift personalized with our new logo and have the opportunity to win prizes by entering a special raffle. Residents are also encouraged to participate in “Food for Fines” between April 8 and 14.   It is a chance to make your fines from overdue library materials disappear while keeping the shelves of our local food bank well-stocked.
