MMT Library has a new logo!


Over the past few weeks, the Library has begun using our new logo which appears on our website and social media and will pop up soon in other locations.  The Board of Trustees, the Staff Marketing Committee and Aviate Creative LLC worked hard on creating a new emblem that relates to our historic building, but with modern flair.  It was modeled after the stained glass windows in the 1917 wing of the Library that face South Street.  While our new logo depicts the Library’s initials, MMT, the windows depict the initials of the famous American authors Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, James Russell Lowell, William Cullen Bryant, Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr., and John Greenleaf Whittier.  They were all pallbearers at the funeral of Nathaniel Parker Willis, the grandfather of Grinnell Willis who donated the funds to build the 1917 Library.  The windows honor Willis’s grandfather, a famous mid-19th century poet and essayist.  We’re excited to be honoring our past with this beautiful new contemporary design.
