Library Mascot

original Dewey drawing

Dewey was unveiled as the new Burbank Library mascot on May 21, 2014. The library mascot design contest was a volunteer effort of the Burbank Neighborhood Leadership Program Class of 2014.

Out of more than 250 submissions, Dewey the Dragon, created by Chris Runco, a local Burbank artist, cartoonist, and art director -- was the ultimate choice to become the first-ever mascot of the Burbank Public Library.

Dewey makes an appearance at community events around the City of Burbank and is featured on his own Library card and promotional items. He also stands tall in the display case at the Buena Vista Branch Library.
