Famous library felines

You’ve probably seen the famous cats Baker and Taylor on the brand’s merchandise. But do you know anything about their backstory?

The new book The True Tails of Baker and Taylor chronicles the memories of the two beloved cats, and details their personality and behavior. The two cats were brought into the library world with a purpose – protect the Douglas County Library in Minden, NV from a rodent invasion triggered by a recent remodel. They became community favorites, but their popularity skyrocketed when the supplier company Baker & Taylor named the cats as the brand’s official mascots. They even ended up with a fan club!

The book also investigates the positive influence of animals on humans, especially in an office environment. Animals are a good reminder in this time of constant technology to take a step back and live in the moment.
