SHINE – Our Mascots

Meet our library mascots, Seuss, Hergé, Ian, Nick and Enid!

Meet Seuss


Familiar with Horton Hears a Who!How The Grinch Stole Christmas! and The Cat in the Hat? The author who wrote these much loved children’s books is Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) and our dear Seuss was named after him.

Seuss is curious with a bit of a mischievous streak, so don’t let that smart red bowtie fool you! Catch him around the blog and in the library.

Meet Hergé


This shy mascot with his thick-rimmed spectacles is Hergé, and he was named after the author of the well-known The Adventures of Tintin series, Georges Prosper Remi, better known as Hergé.

Much like the mystery in the Tintin books, the bright yellow book that Hergé constantly carries is also a mystery. Just what kind of book is it? Maybe we’ll get to find out, one day.

The other mascots will be introduced soon so stay tuned!
