Name our Blue Sheep

Blue SheepEverybody is Equal – Everybody Counts

This is the theme of the Blue Sheep Art Project, which will be visiting Newport next July (2016).  In the meantime, one Blue Sheep ambassador is here with us right now – and the poor sheep is nameless.

Won’t you help us name our sheep?

You can submit suggested names for our sheep either online or at the library until September 14th.  Librarians will then select six possible names and ask you to vote for your favorite.  The winning name will be announced on September 30th.

Details on the Blue Flock Art Project, our Name-the-Sheep contest can be found online or at the library.
