Before I begin, let me make something absolutely clear. I am a non-circulating Cat. I am for In-house use only.
Why do I feel the need to mention this? One of my Assistant Assistant Bosses came across a travesty earlier this week.
Apparently the Yale Law Library recently had a pilot program during which they circulated Monty, the library dog, to stressed-out law school students.
What they don't tell you is that Monty had thick, luxurious furs before they circulated him. He was probably snow white. He also smiled more.
Seriously, Yale students could "borrow" Monty for 30 minutes at a time, during which they could pet him, play with him, or just hang out in the same room with him.
Everyone is welcome to come in my Library and pet me, give me treats, rub my tummy, give me treats, bask in my handsomeness, and most importantly, give me treats. . . but I am For Reference Only Not To Be Taken From This Building.
Hoping no one gets the Bright Idea to barcode me,
Tober, Non-Circulating Boss of TPL
