Librarians share stories about all the interesting things left behind in library book return slots, but one of the most interesting happened in Spencer, Iowa. On a frightfully cold night, someone stuffed a small kitten in the book return slot at the Spencer Public Library. Library Director Vicki Myron took him in and he was appropriately named Dewey Readmore Books. He became a beloved fixture in the library, charming the people of Spencer for 19 years as the beloved library mascot.
