Scout joined the Union Ave Books team in October 2015 and immediately became a favorite. She greets customers, recommends books and gifts, helps behind the counter, meets authors, and even helps with the dusting. She also gets into trouble on occasion—that’s when she’s known as Jean Louise!
Keep up with Scout on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as she shares her adventures at Union Ave Books with her family and friends.
