Dewey the Library Cat: A True Story
Dewey the Library Cat: A True Story | Vicki Myron
26 posts | 22 read | 4 to read
Now everyone's favorite library cat can inspire a new audience of young readers with his story of courage and love. Like the hardcover, this paperback edition of the middle-grade adaptation of New York Times bestseller "Dewey" features an 8-page photo insert of the Dew! In the tradition of "Marley: A Dog Like No Other," this is the story of a cat who was more than a pet, and the amazing effect he had on the people around him. Abandoned in a library book drop slot in the dead of winter, this remarkable kitten miraculously endured the coldest night of the year. Dewey Readmore Books, as he became known, quickly embraced his home inside Spencer's public library, charming the struggling small town's library-goers, young and old. As word of Dewey's winning tail, or rather his tale, spread, the library cat gained worldwide fame as a symbol of hope and proof positive that one small cat could change a town, one reader at a time.

One of my favorites set in Iowa recounts the life of Dewey Readmore Books, the cat in residence at the Spencer Public Library in Spencer, Iowa. I read it when it came out in 2008, hard to believe it was over 13 years ago! #roadtripusa2022

Starting a little late but this is my stack. I will probably just be hopping around all day with no real order.

Dewey was found one freezing winter morning in the book return chute at a library in a small Iowa town. He was nursed back to health and became the library‘s mascot, and the rest was history 🐈

This was okay. I think I was expecting to connect more to this story and it was a little bit dry in parts. I loved Dewey and found it to be a sweet book, but not as interesting as I thought it would be.

Clwojick @Dolly #blackcatsforthewin lol! Seriously though, every black cat I've ever owned has always had such a fun and spunky personality. Much like myself. ❤️ 4y

I don't understand the phrase "too many books" ♥️?

Happy #Caturday - I've been using Saturday mornings to take photos but I've woke up to grey skies & a tiny chance of rain this morning. So I'm flipping my routine around & reading this morning.

the only thing better than books is bookish swag!
I ❤️ my "Readers Gonna Read" tshirt. The book journal and pencils were Etsy finds. no bookish gear photo would be complete without bookmarks, of which I've got plenty. bonus points if there's a cat on it! ? #24in48

[DELETED] 3803335244 This is great! Love the bookmarks 😍 5y

Tonight's homework: to start making my #TBR list for this Saturday's Readathon!

Planning to stick "mostly" to my current library checkouts but going to add in a few graphic novels and short quick reads for variety and for when I start to fade lol.

#mylocallibrary is my place of work! I'm a library director at a small, rural #library in southern #Minnesota - If you haven't visited your library (physically or virtually) for years, I encourage you to. Times are changing and, guess what, libraries are working hard to fit your needs!! #riotgrams

Josie I only use my online digital library, but I love it! If the book is due and I forget to return, they just automatically take it back! No late fees! I love it. 5y
heidisreads @Josie Glad to hear you're a virtual library patron! Isn't it so nice to be able to check out books (for free!!) from wherever is most convenient?!? Do you check out audiobooks too? Does your library also have a digital video collection? 5y
