A few weeks ago we asked for your input on our new mascot’s name, and we were blown away by all of the creative suggestions! Over 250 names were submitted.
In the end, the name “Dewey” won out. Thank you for helping us name our new mascot!
You’ll start to see Dewey soon at library and community events near you. He may even show up at a parade or two! You never know where he might pop up.
We have to thank the Cobb Library Foundation for their support of Dewey and the entire mascot project. The Cobb Library Foundation was founded in 2003 to create the margin of excellence for our library—building private support, enhancing visibility for our library’s impact, and strengthening the public’s commitment to a great library.
Please join us as we welcome Dewey* to Cobb County!
*Some people suggested Dewey because of the connection to the Dewey Decimal System and Melvil Dewey, an educator and librarian. And yes, in rare occasions, calico cats can be male!
