Library Drops ‘Public’ From Its Name

“Without fanfare, the Westport Public Library has dropped “Public” from its name. Since it first opened its doors in 1886, the library has been known as a public library. It’s just that Morris Jesup, who founded it, did not then include the word “public” in its name. Over the years, however, it’s been called the Westport Public Library. In December 2010, the library proudly unveiled its new WPL logo with “Public” prominent in its name.” (via WestportNow.com)
