Sonora’s public library closing book on feral cat flap

A librarian’s duties include a lot more than he or she picks up in library school…in this case, librarians have been forced to do the work of animal control officers.

An anonymous letter to county officials in Sonora, CA charged that a colony of about 20 cats was being allowed to inhabit the library property, and even accused a library employee of founding and fostering the population. Tuolumne County Library Director Connie Corcoran denies that a feral cat population now exists as the letter describes and adds that she wishes the person complaining about the cats had come to her instead of county authorities.
