Lulu the frog
The library's reading mascot
A library frog called Lulu
Lulu the library frog is the mascot for children's library work in Vaasa. The frog, designed by illustrator Terese Bast, was introduced in January 2016 when the new children's section was opened in the main library. The name Lulu was picked in a naming contest that drew close to 500 submissions. The library staff picked the winner.
You can find Lulu on library staff t-shirts and on other materials connected with children's library work. All Vaasa city library locations have their own soft toy Lulus. The project received funding from the Ministry of culture and education.
