VBDL ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF MASCOT DESIGN CONTEST
DECATUR, MICHIGAN – – – – VBDL has a new mascot thanks to Emma Brown of Decatur. The creative, young patron received first place in VBDL’s mascot design contest with her entry of a friendly giraffe, who can be found at the library every day. JoJo the Giraffe will debut as VBDL’s official mascot once the library’s graphic designer completes the finishing touches.
Joining JoJo at various times throughout the year is, “The Book Eater,” a voracious book drop designed by six-year-old Levi Brown of Mattawan.
JoJo and The Book Eater will complement the library’s children’s programs on social media, in print, and, it is hoped, in person.
Van Buren District Library is headquartered at Webster Memorial Library in Decatur, with branches in Bangor, Bloomingdale, Covert, Gobles, Lawrence and Mattawan.
