It's hard to miss the whimsical statue — an adult frog reading to a baby frog — that greets visitors outside the front entrance of the Miller Branch Library. Another frog statue, equally as clever, sits in the library's Enchanted Garden. When the library held a contest to name the toads they received approximately 4,000 entries. One of those entries was from Ellicott City resident Nathan Stitely who is a frequent visitor to the Miller Branch library. According to his mom, while visiting the new branch, he saw the contest information and thought it would be fun to give it a try. He hopes to be a famous cartoonist some day and thought this might be a great way to get his start, by naming the toad.
