The MPL Bee


The MPL bee is at the heart of our brand, but how did the bee come to be?

Coming to fruition through a play on our “Be Inspired” tagline, the bee has become an important symbol for Milton Public Library. It symbolizes the library as a “hive”, a community, a collective and a healthy, organic place for inspiration and collaboration.

Much like a colony of bees, MPL fosters a collaborative environment and offers a safe space to the community to Read. Learn. Create. Connect.
