Waukesha County Federated Library System is a library system in Wisconsin. We are adding another county in 2016, so our name is changing to Bridges.
We are not actually a library. We serve libraries and library staffs. Our mission: Improving member libraries through leadership, collaboration, and support. We provide a variety of services to our libraries including the shared online catalog called CAFE (Catalog Access for Everyone) as well as handling the delivery of materials so that libraries can share their resources. We also offer consulting services and continuing education opportunities. You can read more about us here: http://www.wcfls.org/about-us/.
We changed our name to Bridges to convey connections and support. We provide connections and support to our libraries and they provide connections and support to the people they serve.
We'd like our logo to help convey, with an image, why the word Bridges helps define us. Our preference is for something clean that can be easily reproduced in different sizes and for different purposes. And while we are about books, we are about a lot more than that these days. We offer e-books and e-magazines, audiorecordings, wi-fi access, programs (including storytimes and other kids' events), and community meeting spaces.
Thanks for considering our contest!
