Since 2010, Cauli Le Chat, feline roving reporter for Mooresville Public Library (Mooresville, Indiana), has reported all things interesting to cats (and humans) happening at the library. Related stories from across the state (and beyond) are also included.
There are a few inside jokes here. Bob Prime jots questions on note cards when he needs to consult colleagues or patrons. He also distributes Smarties candies to our younger patrons visiting the circulation desk. So Bobs two and three do the same. It's like that thing where like electrical charges will converge upon the least resistant conductive pathways. (Actually, I just made that up. Or is it an actual thing? Or not? How would I know? I'm no electrical engineer.)
A tasty treat, for sure
Since we now have three Bobs, there are some natural comparisons that come to mind.
Oliver, Boss Cat at the Clinton (Indiana) Public Library (CPL), recommended a wonderful children's board book called Mouse's First Halloween, by Lauren Thompson (illustrated by Buket Erdogan). Ashley Wolfe read the book aloud in an episode of CPL's award-winning Story Time Anytime! video series, available to watch below (and on CPL's YouTube channel).

This video was awarded (just now, as you're reading this) the coveted Cauli Le Chat statuette of feline excellence given in the category of best library educational video production. There's a cute trophy and everything. Well, there's a picture of a trophy. Close enough for moi.
My minions and I are definitely looking forward to watching more installments of Story Time Anytime! We enjoy readalouds, as you can see from our YouTube channel (click here and here).
Great job, Oliver and company! Say, if you need any free music for your video soundtracks, we have our own composer who's willing to share. Just saying.
Is it too early to recommend some spooky reading? Halloween is just around the corner. Well, some corner, somewhere. It might be forty blocks away, but the weather is fine, and the walking will do you good.
Take a peek at our early scary book displays at the library. Minions, make with the digital snaps.

What's in that glass-topped table?
The book covers include the items' call numbers and shelving locations, so finding these should be easy. Ask our staff to help. They could use the exercise.
We have lots of other spooky reads available to checkout. Our friendly staff will be happy to assist you. Scowl-Face, too. Well, probably. You may always browse our book trailer playlists that feature horror/supernatural fiction or paranormal nonfiction.
During your next visit to the library, see if you can find all the haunted spots shown in the brochure. Maybe something out of the ordinary will happen to you. Only watch where you stand. There may be a disembodied spirit taking up that space.
