"Some Pig" Update! We are pleased to announce our DRML pig mascot has been named! Introducing Osquealia Porcia Hamlette! Thank you to Kathy Barickman, Henry Bradshaw and Emma Jobinpicard and to all who entered their name suggestions! We loved so many and had a hard time deciding! The staff couldn't pick just one, so we gave the pig a first, a middle and a last name!

Next up is a community Latin challenge! Help us get to know Osquealia better by translating the quotes painted on her body. Come into the library to get a closer look!
