FARMINGTON -- With a $4.5 million Davis County Main Library opening Oct. 13, county officials believe now is the time to change its branding for the county library system.
The last time the county made such a change was 12 years ago.
A new logo will be placed on banners and signs. It will also be on book bags and library cards, which were made available for sale Wednesday, Davis County Library Director Chris Sanford.
The book bags cost $9 each, while new library cards for current users are $1, Sanford said. The charge for the card is to offset bar coding and staff time for having to make an adjustment to the computer, she said.
For new library card holders the cards are free.
County library officials wove the green and blue Davis County "Connects. You." logo and tagline into their new signage, book bags and cards.
"This is really a culmination of two years' worth of work and discussion," Sanford said.
Davis County Commissioner Bret Millburn offered to be the first to buy a new library card. But Sanford told Millburn that he, like everyone else, would have to wait to swap out his old card for a new one.
The county libraries open at 10 a.m.
Sanford said her group decided to play off the county tagline, extending it to read on their signs: "Davis County Library Connects. You. To...", an indication of the endless amount of information that can be found at the library.
The "all encompassing" branding is being done now because the county is needing to recreate everything as a result of the main library in Farmington receiving a new address, she said.
The new address will be 133 S. Main St., Farmington, Sanford said.
