A talented graphic artist checked out a competition at the Ponoka Jubilee Library and won.

Grace Hoviuf, of Ponoka, entered the logo design the contest on a whim without any expectations; she’s never entered any graphic design contest before, let alone a national one.

“The name is actually jubilee, excitement, celebration,” said Hoviuf, referring to her logo design. The books surrounding the name double as fireworks.

“The board chose something being a fresh look for the library,” said librarian David Tremblay.

While it won’t be used as the Jubilee Library’s new logo, the winning design will provide ideas to the board for logo ideas in the future.

The library also has a display board featuring all entrees of the contest to be voted on by the public through a ballot system.

The Jubilee Library board is using public opinion to realize and take into account what people want in the new logo.

“It’s just a way to grab some community feedback,” said Tremblay.

The official new logo for the library will come into effect next fall, says Tremblay, hopefully before Christmastime.

However, first the library board needs to go through the creative process and look at the budget to decide what funds can be put toward the project.
