A few years ago I wrote about Beauregard, the library cat at the H. B. Stamps Public Library in Hawkins County, Tennessee. Well, it seems that Parnassus Books of Nashville, Tennessee has done H. B. Stamps Public Library one better. Parnassus Books has a shop sheep!
Last summer I had the pleasure of visiting Parnassus Books and found the staff to be helpful and kind. The book selection was wonderful and I really liked the way book picks were displayed at the front. Parnassus also has an amazing First Editions Club, if you are interested.
To see more pictures of Buttercup, the shop sheep at Parnassus Books, check out Musing, their literary blog.
Beauregard the Library Cat is the newest member of the H. B. Stamps Library Staff. The H. B. Stamps Library is located in Hawkins County, TN.
The Hawkins County Library Website reports that Beauregard has been very helpful in making sure the chairs are being used. He likes to be around people and does not mind occasional petting. The librarians only ask that you not pick him up (mostly for his safety).
Let’s hope that other libraries follow this example and adopt a homeless cat!
