Browser, the Library Cat at the Pine River Public Library in the Kitchigami Library System, visited the Cloquet Public Library this week (or at least a life-size reproduction of the sleek black cat turned up). He joined both LapSit and Preschool Story Times and was well-received by children and adults alike.
In 2002, when Browser was nine months old, library staff took him in, and he has been living at the library ever since. When the library moved to its current location, the kids who helped move the books also moved Browser!
Browser’s goal is to visit as many libraries in Minnesota as possible. Afterward, he will journey across the USA and eventually around the world. If you would like to track his progress, go to Browser’s Facebook page or blog site (www.facebook.com/browser.cat or http://library-cat.blogspot.com
