Wyoming Libraries and SafeLibraries Logos

Here is the new Wyoming Libraries logo of what looks like a Playboy bunny reading a book:


Here is the SafeLibraries logo/parody of the typical library street sign of an open book/reader, but having a Playboy bunny:

What do Wyoming libraries and SafeLibraries have in common? A sense of humor! "We are using bumper stickers in the libraries as a way to bring an element of humor to libraries and make them more interesting to residents who do not normally use the library." And the "favicon" for SafeLibraries, as enlarged above, is perfect for libraries that sing the American Library Association anthem.

I see the two logos as being near mirror images of each other, with both demonstrating a sense of humor. Way to go, Wyoming Libraries!

Wyoming residents, go get your free access to the ChiltonLibrary auto repair database. I'm jealous!
