BROCKTON--Brockton Public Library is holding a "Name The Hawk" contest for residents, patrons, officials and all other members of the public to help give the visiting hawk a nickname.
New Director Elizabeth Marcus Wolfe said the hawk has been spotted countless times over the last few months visiting the surrounding area and especially roasting in a tree at the rear of the libray's parking lot on White Avenue.
Wolfe said she can often see the red-tailed hawk from the second-floor window of her office and patrons and employees are enjoying looking for its visits.
Anyone who has an idea for the hawk's name can fill out a suggestion form at the main circulation desk or children's department desk, or email Sandy Reed at firstname.lastname@example.org. The library will pick a winner on Tuesday, Jan. 17 after Martin Luther King Day.
