Good-bye, Browser.

Browser the Library Cat is now on his way to the Haywood County Public Library in Waynesville, North Carolina. AAB Blog Helper suggested that he go visit that library because it was the one that she visited as a middle-schooler. Obviously the library staff there must be patient and kind, because they never kicked her out for her shenanigans. (She claims she was mostly well-behaved, but a little noisy.)

Before he left for the next stop on his World Tour, Browser attended the Indianapolis 500. (For a great write-up of his last few days in Indiana, visit his blog.)

Things are awfully expensive at the race, so Browser went shopping for snacks the night before. I have never been shopping before--I'm not sure how I'd feel about being out of the library like that. Browser managed to get my AAB to make a pit stop in the Cat Treat aisle.

Browser enjoyed the race except for the excessive loudness of the cars going around and around and around again. I'm glad he got to do something Special while he was in Indiana.

I think Browser must be a very Good and Vigilant Library Cat. The Pine River Public Library is very lucky to have him!

I, for one, and a little Sad to see him go. Now that we're back to a One-Cat Library I will never get a Vacation.

Missing my friend,

(Hoping for a post-card,)


Don't forget to check on Browser as he travels. See what he has to say about libraries across the country--and maybe even the World!

Hi Tober,

I have just been doing some thinking about how I can get into the library without being booted out!

I could have a fax made of myself like your cat friend did. I am black, so no difference there. Then I could go visit all the libraries (including yours!) Sound like fun to you? It does to me. Do you know where I can get one of those look-a-likes made?

Oh Tober, I can see you had a good time with Browser. I love that Browser is visiting lots of libraries! Go Libraries! Go reading! Go free books, CDs and DVDs! I love the library!

Tober, you must see my latest blog post. I think you will like it a lot! You are my brother of another mother. Meow!

Tober, I hate to say this.....but, Browser doesn't seem "quite right", if you know what I mean. You are so much more handsome...and fluffier!
