Two years ago, we decided our library needed a mascot. After a lot of discussion we decided we wanted something truly unique to our library. We made a sock doll and created a ballot with a list of names patrons could vote between. The general favorite was Zippety. Zippety lives on a shelf top in our children's area. He wears costumes, has several pen pals among our young patrons, and generally helps promote upcoming library events. I hope to post on here every time he wears a new costume, so keep and eye out for Zippety.
