Help the Darlington County Library System name its mascot
The plan to draw out the mystery creature at the Darlington County Library System was a success.
The creature is a Book Dragon!
Staff at all four library branches encountered the Book Dragon in the early hours of Saturday, Feb. 29, finding the creature playing with the toys and reading books left out.
It is a gentle, bashful dragon that loves to read fairy tales, play with stuffed animals and eat bananas!
It can’t breathe fire, so staff members don’t have to worry about it lighting up the books, and it doesn’t like to roar, so they know it will be quiet while in the Library.
It is a kind and friendly dragon that just wants to make friends with the people of Darlington County.
Staff members feel it is safe to allow the Book Dragon to become a patron of our library! However, before they can give it a library card to check out books and DVDs, the dragon must first have a name!
Staff members can’t pronounce its Dragon language name, so they need the public’s help to give it a name! All you need to do is head to your local Darlington County Library location, fill out a naming slip, and enter your suggested name!
Staffers will be accepting suggested names through March 17 and will choose the winning name.
The Book Dragon’s name will be revealed April 4 at its first public appearance as library mascot at the Darlington branch’s DarCon Comic Con.
They will recognize the winner on that day.
Suggested dragon names may be male and female. Enter as many suggested names as you would like.
