Librarian Pets and Trivia

While many libraries and bookshops around the world have live library mascots, Jamestown Community Library doesn’t currently have a four-legged friend in residence. In fact, only service animals are permitted in the library. But that doesn’t mean we librarians aren’t animal lovers.

Several Jamestown staff members have family of the four-legged variety. We feature our staff pets below. Staff members who own pets are Jane, Paul, Mary, Sheryl, Sara, Brenna, and Alma. See if you can guess who owns whom… Two of the entries are owned by the same person. Then join us for our first live Trivia Night at the Jamestown library on March 8th, when you can win a prize for your knowledge of general trivia, history, and pop culture.
