Gatos (e não ratos) de Biblioteca


     What is a library cat?
     It is a cat that calls a library its home. Most were homeless before being adopted by a library. Now Web-surfing cat lovers can find these felines that live in libraries by consulting the map. Visitors can click on any region of the world to view a list of the cats known to reside (or to have formerly resided) in libraries there. People can view photos of the cats, visit the cats' home pages on the Web, and even send them e-mail!
     The map contains information on nearly 600 library cats around the world. There are certainly more cats in the stacks. Iron Frog Productions would like your assistance in compiling the definitive list of library cats in the world. Visit the site and check out the ones from your area. If, 'purr' chance, you know of one that was missed, you can help update the list. In this way, you will play a part in creating a resource for people who would like to stop by on their travels to visit a library cat (as well as creating a memorial to past library cats).

     Puss in Books takes a provoking and thought provoking look at cats that live in libraries throughout the United States. Most of these felines and the librarians who care for them belong to the Librarian Cat Society, an organisation who's mission is «to promote a establishment of a cat or cats in a library setting. As the director of the society says, «considering that these are 15 000 public libraries [in the United States], there seems to be much work to be done». Puss in Books goes behind the scenes - and between the stacks - to tell the story of this burgeoning movement.»
