Atticus, the Wise Dragon

 On June 9, 2021 local artist, Dutch Bryant presented the Jennie Woodworth Library with a marvelous painting of the wise dragon, Atticus.

Atticus is a special dragon because he loves to read. He encourages others to be a "book dragon" as well.

Make sure to stop by and meet Atticus while you are checking out a book to read.
