The next time you are in the Valatie Free Library, check out the southwest corner of the new room. Meet our new friend donated by the Joseph family. He joins the painting in the children’s area also donated by the Joseph family. We invite children who visit the Library to suggest names for this beautiful giraffe from now through the Christmas holidays. A panel of library trustees will decide on the winning name which will be announced on Saturday, December 29th. So, kids, what name do you think fits the giraffe? Place a name on one of the paper giraffes at the Circulation Desk. Vote once or several times if you wish. Help us start the new year with a new name for our giraffe! Thank you to the Joseph family for the two giraffes and for the naming opportunity for kids.
