Just like other Koalas, our Pickles is not a bear, he is a nocturnal marsupial. Koalas spend up to 18 hours per day sleeping in forks or nooks of trees. We find Pickles sleeping on the book shelves all the time!! Thank you to everyone that suggested a name for our Koala! Stop by and see Pickles at the Edmeston Free Library!
Please submit your suggestion to the library either in person, via email to EFL firstname.lastname@example.org, or email to Jo Salo – email@example.com. A name will be selected from all entries and revealed on June 19th.
