Mayor Marsha McLean is set to gather with local toddlers for a special reading of a new book highlighting Santa Clarita’s history at the Old Town Newhall Library Wednesday.

The event is scheduled to take place during the Santa Clarita Public Library’s “Just for 2’s and 3’s” storytime starting at 11 a.m. at the library, located at 24500 Main St.

The book, titled “Sammy Stories — Meet Sammy Clarita,” follows the story of the city’s horse mascot Sammy Clarita, while including local historical facts.

City Communications Manager Carrie Lujan said the publication aims to educate younger generations about the history of where they live through fun illustrations as told by the mascot.
