Librarian promises to kiss a cow to help raise money

This One Cracks Me Up, Laurie Shearer, a San Bernardino County librarian who works in the Grand Terrace branch, intends to kiss a cow if $5,000 is raised to help maintain programs at the library. Like most of the more than 30 county libraries, Grand Terrace’s branch has been hurt by a 74 percent cut to its budget, she said.

Shearer, who got the idea about kissing a cow from the Internet, said kissing a cow seemed easier than dying her hair green. She said a couple of people have even offered their cows as a mate.

“I really don’t care which one it is as long as I don’t get an old grouchy one that bites,’ she said.
