Return of Rex

The library mascot, a small dinosaur named Reference Rex, was missing for 2 months and has finally been located. We missed Rex, as he's the guy who introduces library services and changes we make in the library.

Friend Rex on Facebook to see where he might have been while away from the reference desk.
