Emma the cat is celebrating her 10th anniversary at the Lyme Public Library, and the Library is marking the event with a party on Saturday, February 9 from 1 to 3 p.m.. Refreshments will be served. Donations of cat and dog food, toys, blankets, etc. will be accepted on Emma’s behalf for a local animal shelter.
Emma arrived at the Library from a local animal shelter in February 2003. Almost immediately, she became a beloved member of the Library staff and the Lyme community. She has had visitors from all over the country, has appeared in Cat Fancy magazine, and is featured in a book entitled Working Cats of Southern New England. She also has her own page on the Library’s web site and is on Twitter @EmmaLymePLCat.
If the Library is closed on February 9 due to bad weather, the party will be held on Saturday, February 16. Please call 860-434-2272 for more information.
