Help Name the new Cape Ann Reads mascot extended

No, Paul did not say ‘Rubber Duck’s friend’

The seagull with spectacles is a logo designed by Ashley Curcuru, member of the Teen Artist Guild (TAG) at The Hive Cape Ann Art Haven in downtown Gloucester. The bird needs a name! Have some fun, jot down a suggestion and give it to your local librarian. And please ask your kids to drop off their ideas, too. I see Paul Morrison has tossed in an entry on the Sawyer Free Facebook page…

Kudos to Valerie Marino for the library’s social media and that cute desk display.
