The Hugh Manatees in Waterville

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?

Hugh’s 37th Maine mystery site was the Waterville Public Library!

“Here’s Hugh posing with our Director, Sarah Sugden next to the building dedication plaque.  Ours is one of the earliest Carnegie Libraries in Maine.”

Hints from the library: “In one, Hugh is next to our unofficial library mascot — Dobby. Dobby was rescued from a dusty storeroom at a former movie theater in town. Library staff gave him a sock and a job, watching over the lobby and helping to promote reading. In the other, Hugh is enjoying a display of seashells collected by Katie Westervelt, a resident of ‘the next town over’ from ours.”
