Creat­ing, con­nect­ing and open­ing.

Those are some of the themes be­ing con­sid­ered as the Stor­mont- Dun­das- Glen­garry Li­brary Sys­tem seeks a new slo­gan.

This past spring, staff and board mem­bers com­piled a list of six po­ten­tial mis­sion state­ments that “fit with where the li­brary is and where it is head­ing. Now, staff have taken these state­ments out to the public to find out what com­mu­nity mem­bers think.”

“It was time to up­date our mis­sion state­ment,” said Karen Franklin, Di­rec­tor of Li­brary Ser­vices. “How peo­ple see and use our li­brary has been chang­ing, and our mis­sion needed to re­flect a more up­dated and us­able idea.”

The state­ments range from short and to the point, to more tra­di­tional styles. As well, there is the op­tion of writ­ing in your own sug­ges­tion.

Peo­ple can vote on their favourite state­ment in a li­brary branch, at the Pop Up Li­brary, or on­line un­til Septem­ber 5. “We’ve had an ex­cel­lent re­sponse from peo­ple so far, and are ex­cited to con­tinue to hear more,” Ms. Franklin said.

The sug­gested catch phrases are: Cre­ate. Imag­ine. In­no­vate. SD&G County Li­brary -- We're more than just books!
