A charming article about library cats - felines who take up residence in public libraries and win the hearts of staff and patrons alike:
Library cats greet patrons in about 125 libraries across America. Most live and â€œworkâ€? in cozy, small-town libraries where they donâ€™t get lost in the stacks. Historically, library cats earned their keep doing rodent patrol, but modern library cats have more white-collar duties: to act charming and make the library a welcoming and homey place.
There is even a Library Cat Society which counts many of these cats as members.
