WEEKEND PREVIEW: Story Time Sunday with Kraken mascot Buoy at West Seattle Library

(WSB photo, December 2022)

When the Seattle Kraken mascot Buoy came to West Seattle a little over a year ago, a big crowd turned out. This weekend, Buoy’s back – for a Story Time at the West Seattle (Admiral) Library on Sunday morning (February 18). Here’s the announcement we received today:

Sunday, February 18
10:00 – 11:30 am
Doors open at 10:00 am, story time 10:30 – 11:00 am, meet Buoy 11:00 – 11:30 am
West Seattle Branch, Seattle Public Library
Address 2306 42nd Avenue SW

Story times with Seattle Public libraries are interactive learning opportunities. At story time, kids and their families can enjoy stories, songs, and fun learning activities. Registration is not required. Kids and families will also have the opportunity to meet Seattle Kraken Mascot Buoy! Buoy will be available for photo opportunities and fun.

Buoy is the Seattle sea-troll who inhabits the caverns of Climate Pledge Arena and for who nothing beats a day filled with Kraken hockey and the team’s fans. Folks are drawn to Buoy’s many talents, high-energy, and fun-loving spirit. Odds are you’ll see the troll roaming out and about around the Pacific Northwest as well as hanging with the Fremont Troll, who happens to be Buoy’s Uncle.

When you get to the library, check in with staff for your free tickets to this all-ages event.

    He was at our friends house on Valentines Day. He’s very loved..

    Unfortunately our family cannot afford to attend Kraken games, and we are not low-income. Ridiculous prices for seats.

      Ok, I don’t understand comments like these.  They make it sound like the Kraken are obligated to provide subsidized tickets.  They are a for-profit business, they will (and should) sell seats at the highest price the market can bear.   I agree the tickets are expensive, but I don’t expect them to be cheaper because I think I deserve to go – I assume that’s what your complaint is getting at?  For more affordable fun hockey, try the Seattle Thunderbirds!

      There’s no admission for the West Seattle Library story times so it’s a great chance for kids to experience the Kraken’s Bouy for free.
