In his inaugural year, Hugh journeyed to 45 libraries, from Aroostook County to York County and many spots in between.
In 2016, Hugh jumped on the Shakespeare bandwagon, in honor of the Portland Public Library’s hosting of the First Folio. He engaged in witty (sometimes insulting) Shakespearean repartee and communed with Yorick’s remains, among other things.
Hugh also had a snuggle with Slugger, the Portland Sea Dogs mascot. We learned that baseball-loving seals and humanities-loving manatees have a special kinship (and that Hugh is not only a Sea Dogs fan, but a Red Sox fan, too).
