I am the Elkins-Randolph County Public Library mascot. I can be found having books read to me, sleeping in the Director's office, and supervising Children's programs. I am a Randolph County Humane Society rescue who also acts as part-time staff psychologist and jester.
Reading aloud to an animal not only strengthens language skills and confidence for children, it also soothes a tired library cat!
Studies show that animals make your heart rate slower, lower your anxiety, and provide comfort.
My coat is known as Tortoiseshell. Because of genetics, almost all Torties are Female, and we are considered good luck in multple cultures.
