Visit Hardcover the Turtle
TEWKSBURY -- The Tewksbury Public Library recently welcomed a new director of Charisma and Hospitality -- a yellow-bellied slider turtle named Hardcover. Patrons can visit him at his desk in the children’s department.
It was Children’s Librarian Kat Ealy’s idea to bring Hardcover on board. She said at there was a turtle at the previous library she worked at who was very popular and lovable.
“He brings a lot of people to the library,” Ealy said. “People get a chance to meet him and then they see all the wonderful things the library has to offer and he’s a learning experience.”
Hardcover is also on Twitter, @HardcoverTurtle.
