Meet Snowflake!

Stop by the library and meet the newest addition to the children's department.  Snowflake is a plush pony based on an actual horse in the history of Wells Fargo.  According to the tag attached to Snowflakes ear, "Wells Fargo express wagons were a common sight on land, but if you got up early in the morning in Jersey City in the 1880s, you could watch them board a ferry for their commute into Manhattan.  Snowflake led a team of horses that helped deliver money, merchandise, packages, and important business papers to customers on the other side of the Hudson River."

A big thank you to Wells Fargo Bank for donating Snowflake to us!!
