A Pup in Need of a Name

You may know that one of our most popular discount passes available at RML is the Mystic Aquarium pass. It lets patrons in at discounted rates and can be checkout out on your library card. Chances are that if you live in CT, you've visited many times!
Now is your chance to help the Aquarium name their newest resident - Pup49! 

Taken from the Mystic Aquarium website:
"Pup 49 is a female harbor seal that was admitted to Mystic Aquarium's Seal Rescue Clinic on July 16, 2012. Known as Pup 49 because of her rehabilitation identification number, she had a life-threatening infection in her rear, left flipper that required amputation. The surgery was successful and she has recovered beautifully, but she was deemed non-releaseable by NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service because she is a weaker, less agile swimmer."

Here is the link to Survey Monkey where you can choose from 5 names of Harbors that were selected by volunteers who help care for Pup49.  You have until April 21.


Then stop in to RML and check out some of these titles:
