Penguin was donated to the library by a British exchange officer’s family in July 1988. They adopted her from the SPCA. Penguin enjoyed the limelight and was often found curled up on a patron’s back pack or jacket. She would interrupt story times by strolling up to be petted by the children who loved her. Penguin lived at the Oromocto Public Library for 18 years before she passed away on April 18, 2006.
