UMN Libraries: Name a Library Cart Contest 2024

By January 29, 2024January 30th, 2024No Comments

Name a Library book cart logo.

For the first time, the UMN Libraries (inspired by MnDot’s Name a Snowplow contest) are inviting students, staff, faculty, alumni and the public to help us name one of our book carts.  Please submit your most witty, unique UMN/Gopher, Minnesota or book-themed ideas to name one of our *new* library carts.

Submissions will be accepted through Friday, February 9 at noon.

This year’s contest includes a few basic rules:

  • Submissions are limited to no more than 30 characters (including letters and spaces).
  • Gosh darn it, nothing vulgar please.
  • Politically inspired names (including phrases, slogans or plays on politicians’ names) will not be considered. Naming book carts is meant to be fun and lighthearted, so we’re going to keep this contest nonpartisan and nonpolitical.
Finalists and voting will be announced in a few weeks. Follow @umnlib on instagram & @umnlibrarians on TikTok for updates! Please contact Lacie McMillin ( or Kate Peterson ( with any questions.
