Another Double ARC – The True Tails of Baker & Taylor (Memoir) Claimed thanks
March 28, 2016
Pun titled book featuring a town / branch library with cute cats actually recruited to control mice, cutely named after a major book vendor, and it’s a memoir by a retired librarian. As if you needed to know anything else, I do have two ARC for first claimants who want to read this true story for themselves.
It all started with mice in the library. Assistant librarian Jan Louch and a coworker decided that what the library needed was a cat. Or, even better, two cats. Soon, they found a pair of Scottish Folds who were perfect for the job. Jan named them Baker and Taylor, and they took up residence in the library. But these cats were much more than mousers. Visitors to the library fell in love with Baker and Taylor and their antics just as Jan had. And then, after Jan let the cats be photographed for a poster, they became feline celebrities. Children from across the country wrote them letters, fans traveled from far and wide to meet them, and they became the most famous library cats in the world.</p> <p>In The True Tails of Baker and Taylor, Jan Louch looks back and tells the remarkable story of these two marvelous cats and the people—readers, librarians, and cat lovers of all ages—who came together around them.
