Bring your mommy to see our mummy!

The relationship between animals and humans in Ancient Egypt extended beyond death. Pets were buried in the tombs of their owners, and sacred animals were buried with the reverence due to gods, in their own sepulchers, leaving a legacy of millions of animal mummies.

Come see the library's very own cat mummy on display along with other intriguing items from Ancient Egypt, including pieces from actual mummy casings.

Bring your mommy to see our mummy then "unwind" with a good book at the Cloquet Public Library.
