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.

Meet Ian


If something fun is going on, you will definitely find Ian there. Friendly and popular Ian was named after famed children’s book author, Ian Whybrow, who is especially known for his Harry and his Bucket Full of Dinosaurs series. It was so popular that it was adapted into an animation which has 104 episodes! Wow, now that’s fun!
