Before... ...And After, with Mayor Nenshi!
Ever wonder who is hiding underneath our Mascot, Curious the Chameleon?
Since Curious’ arrival, we’ve had a team of volunteers bring our mascot to Library and Community events all across the city. So it hasn’t just been one person, it’s been many wonderful volunteers willing to don the sometimes heavy and warm costume.
Chief among our volunteer team for Curious is Sherina. Sherina has been working with Curious since the very beginning, in fact she was the first volunteer to dress up as Curious at it’s debut during Saddletowne Library’s opening day in January 2012!
Staff and customers are always commenting about how much energy, fun, and enthusiasm she has for the character. She makes Curious come alive for Calgary's children and has made many a storytime and public event more lively through her charcterization.
“She was flexible, went with the flow, kept up high energy the whole time – playing with kids, getting the crowd excited, etc. She had a smile on her face the whole time and she really pulled the group together!”
Thank you, Sherina, for all that you put into your volunteer work!
