Many public libraries have cat mascots that wander around the bookshelves and cheer up patrons. However now during the coronavirus pandemic, many people are wondering what’s happening with all these library cats.

One of the most famous library cats is Browser from Texas’s White Settlement Public Library. In 2016, a city council member tried to oust Browser from his position at the library but after a public outcry, Browser was reinstated for life while his political opponent lost his reelection campaign.

With so many libraries empty, library cats now have the run of the place while they wait for people to come back to public libraries again.
