State Library of Ohio Logo

The State Library of logo has literal and conceptual connections to our vision and mission.  There are two options: vertical and horizontal formats.

The book and tablet depict the mission to build and manage quality collections and provide hands-on service to state government. Each page of the book changes in form and color to represent new discoveries, forward movement, responsiveness and transformation. Each page color in the spectrum is carefully managed to communicate not only the full experience and outcomes of reading but also the mood, feeling, and representations we associate with color. For example, blue hues represent established, reliable and authoritative. The red hues denote motivation, rejuvenation, passion and determination.

Together the state of Ohio, tablet, and book with turning pages represent cooperation, collaborative efforts, and statewide information sharing networks. The smart tablet with the slogan "A Smarter Ohio" communicates a mission to provide virtual, online and on-the-go access to expert assistance, digitized resources, and a vast selection of electronic materials.
