Library Mascots

I find it interesting that many libraries have their own mascots to promote their services.  There are mascots that dress up as animals, and mascots that dress up as inanimate objects such as books or lamps.  These mascots can be appealing to children, which in turn, will increase frequent visitation of the library services.

One of the more interesting library mascots is Curious the Chameleon.  He is the mascot for the Calgary Public library.  It is a very colorful choice and would seem very appealing to getting kids to use the library.

Here is a page that shows pictures of the various mascots that are a part of the library community:
