Meet Gus Whaley

This summer, the children of Huntsville and Madison County read 6,045 hours!

Our sponsors donated money for every hour read. At the end of the summer, it was enough that we were able to adopt a humpback whale from the Oceanic Society. They also gave him his name: Gus Whaley.

 

The Oceanic Society had this to say:

"Dear Summer Readers of the Huntsville Madison County Public Library, congratulations on reading 6,045 hours this past summer! You have more than earned your adoption of a humpback whale!" Read more about Meet Gus Whaley
