ULC is excited to share a vibrant, new brand identity that not only reflects the innovative spirit of ULC and our member libraries, but how we are working together to transform and strengthen communities across North America!
Building on interviews conducted with our members, our new brand was developed to embody the dynamic look and feel that captures your description of ULC and the work of our member libraries — energetic, community-minded, forward-thinking, strategic, agile, relevant, progressive and collaborative.

ULC libraries are vital institutions that empower all members of the community. ULC is proud to work with such a dedicated network of community leaders to shine a light on the value of public libraries.
