Daisy's message: pig out on books

The Baltimore Sun

Harford County Public Library will welcome Daisy the pot-bellied pig, who will visit all 11 branches beginning tomorrow.

Traveling from Bristol, Conn., Daisy and owner Farmer Minor will share their message about the importance and love of books and tell children to "pig out" on reading.

Daisy, who has visited all 48 contiguous states, is the first pig to be invited inside the U.S. Capitol. She has met foreign dignitaries, was a guest on The Montel Williams Show, received a letter from first lady Laura Bush, and has hundreds of library cards from libraries and schools across the country.

Harford County Public Library Director Audra Caplan will attend tomorrow's program at the Bel Air branch at 2 p.m. to present Daisy with a county library card.

The remaining schedule for Minor and Daisy: tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. at Abingdon, and 6:30 p.m. at Whiteford; Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at Norrisville, 1:30 p.m. at Fallston and 6:30 p.m. at Jarrettsville; Wednesday at 2 p.m. at Joppa and 6:30 p.m. at Edgewood; and Thursday at 10:30 a.m. at Havre de Grace, 2 p.m. at Aberdeen, and 6:30 p.m. at Darlington (Wilson Community Center).

Registration is requested at the library branch.

Information: 410-273-5601, ext. 222.
