Percival Unicorn

Hi I'm Percy

We are so excited to introduce our newest staff member, Percival — or Percy, for short! He appeared like magic one day in the Imagination Garden at the Orange Branch Library and we made him part of the DCDL family on the spot.

This brilliantly blue unicorn will be around to represent the Library at programs and community events. So if you see him out and about, don’t hesitate to give him a hug or a high five! He can’t wait to meet you!
