A quick overview of how to use the redesigned MBLC logo in printed documents, websites, and more.

The logo

Primary MBLC logo - View full size

The logo is designed to act as an identifying symbol for all Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners' programs, services, and funded agencies. The words "Massachusetts Libraries" highlight how the MBLC unifies the libraries across the Commonwealth.

These words denote that the products and services funded by the MBLC are created with the intention to support all Massachusetts residents. It also complements the MBLC progression toward offering patrons and libraries more opportunities for resource sharing.

The tagline serves as an identifier for the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners as a primary funder of Massachusetts Libraries. The tagline should be separated from the logo by a thin horizontal line. Whenever possible, the tagline should be used with the logo.
