Please use a river as inspiration for your design to reflect both our binding geographic namesake, the Appomattox River, and as a metaphor for what we do: provide access to and help navigate the flow of information.
No obvious books or computers in the design, please.
UPDATE (based on entries so far):
-Feel free to stylize our name and/or work the design into the name.
-We would like to see more emphasis on "library." We understand our name is long, which can be a challenge, but we don't want the fact that we are a library to be buried.
-Overall, we would like a warmer, more inviting logo. We are a place where everyone should feel welcome.
-Book/page imagery can be used as long as it is subtle (the logo for Thunder Bay Public Library in Canada is an example of the level of subtly we would accept).
