Remembering Room 8.

Back in April, I posted about a Daily News newspaper article and book about the famous school cat, Room 8. (click here to read)

While Burbank Public Library doesn't post much about non-Burbank events, this is just too good to pass up. Roger Vargo [who wrote the April article] will be showing a multimedia presentation on Room 8-Los Angeles' Most Famous Feline at the Echo Park library, Sat. Nov. 8 at 2 p.m. The library is located at 1410 W. Temple Street Los Angeles, 90026 (213-250-7808).

. . . another library cat:

Big Footsie loves children. It’s his job to pick out books for them to read, listen to their problems and calm them down when times are tough.

As Head Library Cat for seven years at the Arkansas School for the Blind, Footsie has grown up with many of the children who visit him.

“I’ve told Footsie things I’d never tell anybody else,” says Trinity Lovell, a 10 th-grade student who frequents the library to get her “cat fix” every day.
