Archie | 4 years old  | Domestic Long Hair

What makes your cat special? I started to bring Archie into the college library with me a few years ago to provide some stress relief during our biannual study event, Cram Jam. He has become quite at home in the library, and can be found walking around visiting staff and students or just hanging out on the counter waiting for pets.

Confession time. We’re cat people here at Baker & Taylor (OK, maybe that wasn’t a huge secret).

Mew | 3 years old

Unique talent: We joke that Mew is more dog than cat. While we have only had him for six months, he has learned to sit on command.

What makes your cat special? He loves to have his belly rubbed, and will flop over on his back whenever one of us is close.  He has become my constant companion, and his favorite place to sleep is at the foot of my bed.

In 1983, two librarians at the then-newly built Douglas County Public Library in Minden, Nev. had the idea to adopt two cats to work in the library keeping rodents away.
