Frog News

New frog pictures!  Peacham recently travelled to Virginia and had a great time in the Shenandoah Valley visiting the Strasburg Library and other places.  At the same time, Jing, flew off to Scotland, England and Iceland.  To see all the places the frogs have travelled check out the Library Frogs page.

While the frogs were gone, a new frog arrived at the library.  Not only is this a very colorful frog, but there are magnets in the arms and legs that will make it easy to attach the frog to a sign for photo ops!  Please help us name this frog.  Drop off your suggestions, post them here, or email us. We’ll let the folks at coffee hour choose the final name.
