A graphic expression of our library’s words

August 22, 2008


As you might imagine, I’ve been thinking (a lot) lately about how we might use words to tell our library’s story. I discovered a clever website that allows you to create art with words.

All I had to do was cut the words from my post “Why expand the library?” and paste them into the Wordle website and voila! (Good thing it was that simple, because I’m no artist.)

If you want to see the words up close, you can view them in the Wordle Gallery. Just click on the words “Wordle Gallery” (in blue in the previous sentence) and you’ll go to this particular work of art on the Wordle web site.

It’s pretty amazing! Try it yourself with some of your favorite words!
