He's an unusual mascot for a library.

Winston the Hedgehog sits in his glass cage at the Winneconne Public Library entrance, greeting young and old patrons as they walk through the door.

The library staff has found Winston not only gets kids excited to visit the library and pick up a book, but also gives the community a common bond. Winston is everyone's pet, they said.

Watch the video above for more on Winston and his impact on his small Wisconsin community.
