Library users, meet Tales the Whale.
The Vancouver Island Regional Library’s mascot has a name thanks to a Campbell River boy who has a way with words.
The library system held a contest to name the whale and 12-year-old Cameron Michalko came up with the name “Tales.”
Contest judges liked his suggestion out of 850 received. It wasn’t his only suggestion. He intially thought of Page as a name.
“Then it came to me – Tales,” Michalko said.
For his efforts, Michalko recieved a prize basket full of books, toys and other goodies at the Campbell River branch on Wednesday.
And the library system which serves Vancouver Island and Haida Gwaii now has a name for their new mascot.
