A metal dragon sculpture on display at the Madera library now has a name, and two patrons won the honor of choosing it.

Patrons Godfrey Coppinger and Christina Gomez won tote bags, $50 and several gift cards for contributing their winning nominations. The name of the dragon is now Rusty “Scarlett” Pendragon.

Friends of Madera County Library hosted a Name the Dragon contest for the sculpture created by Jose Guadalupe Garcia. The artwork will remain at the library until sold.

The library can be found at 121 N. G St. or online at
