Learning Round Table Announces New Logo

CHICAGO, Feb. 25, 2010 – The Learning Round Table of the American Library Association unveiled a new logo on the Web site

The new logo contains a vibrant palette of colors including purple, blue, orange and green. The abstract design has many different meanings and the public is encouraged to comment on the ALA Learning site and describe what the design represents to them.

The logo was designed by Jennifer Palmer a graphic designer and illustrator based in northern California. Palmer, a former senior production designer for American Libraries Magazine and Booklist publications, said, “I designed the logo to convey a feeling of professionalism, diversity, quality, and forward thinking while embracing the fun and welcoming spirit of the Learning Round Table members and leadership.”

Learning Round Table president, Pat Carterette, said that, “The new logo marks the culmination of a project that has been in the works for over a year to rebrand the Learning Round Table.”

The Learning Round Table officially changed its name from the Continuing Library Education Network and Exchange Round Table last summer at the ALA annual conference in Chicago.
