Where in the World has Farley Visited?

Farley

If you’re planning a 2 week vacation, ask to take Farley along on your travels. Farley is a stuffed ferret at the West University Library. He is available for a 2 week loan to accompany families on their vacations. All we ask is that you take a photo or two of Farley doing something interesting – visiting a landmark, enjoying a fun activity, meeting new people, etc. When you return Farley, bring your photo of him. We will display his photos in the library next to a map of the world. Let’s see how far Farley can travel and what interesting sights he will enjoy!
