The Hugh Manatees in Augusta

Where are the Hugh Manatees in Maine? We're sending three of our mascots to libraries around the state! Can you guess where Hugh is?

Back to Hugh Manatees

Hugh’s 27th mystery site was the Maine State Library in Augusta!

Hugh was lucky enough to meet Maine’s new State Librarian, Jamie Ritter! Mr. Ritter showed Hugh the state library’s very busy calendar. Hugh also checked out a Civil War display with Shannon Schinagl!

Some highlights from Hugh’s visit: “Hugh learned how to use the 3-D printer. Look! He made a manatee cookie cutter! Hugh also got help from Emily, the Reference Librarian, checked out a book on manatees, helped Michael laminate the covers of new books, and visited the Talking Books department.”
