The Hugh Manatees in Orono

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 was at the Orono Public Library! Check out the map of all the participating libraries.

Hints from the library: “Our new library at 39 Pine Street was opened to the public in 9/9/2009.  The community raised funds to replace the prior facility, in the local High School: a temporary location since 1964!”

Hugh can be seen highlighting some of the fancy furniture and shelving that is included in our new building:  Browser Bins for children’s picture books; CD storage on pull out shelving; and the very popular comfy chairs with side arms for laptops.
