d_dsc8728Meet the newest library mascot—a tarantula! She is a female black and white Brazilian tarantula (species: Nhandu coloratovillosus) and will be living in a terrarium downstairs by the Teen section. To learn more about tarantulas, check out the Teen page of our newsletter.

Behold, the top five choices:

Ariadne

Vote by leaving us a comment with your favorite name. You can vote by leaving a comment on this blog post, on our Instagram or Facebook spider posts, or reply to us on Twitter – one vote per platform. Voting closes December 3rd.
