March Meowness: Public Library Comes Up With Genius Solution For Unpaid Dues

March 6, 2024

Today's good news story comes from Worcester, Massachusetts.

In a feline-friendly initiative that's taking Worcester by storm, the Worcester Public Library has introduced "March Meowness: Felines for Fee Forgiveness."

This innovative program is not only putting smiles on the faces of library patrons but also turning cat pictures into a currency for fee forgiveness.

The concept is as delightful as it sounds – if you find yourself facing overdue fees for lost or damaged Worcester Public Library items, all you need is a picture of a cat to wipe the slate clean.

The library took to Facebook to announce the heartwarming campaign, stating, "Today is the day! We've got one month of fee forgiveness for lost or damaged WPL items! Show us a picture of your cat, a famous cat, a picture you drew of a cat - any cat, and we will forgive WPL fees on your account."

The response has been nothing short of astounding, with cat lovers and library patrons enthusiastically sharing snapshots of their furry friends to reclaim their library privileges. The library staff has been inundated with hundreds of cat photos, creating a delightful collage that adorns a dedicated wall in the library.

The success of "March Meowness" goes beyond the forgiveness of library fees; it highlights the power of community engagement and the ability of shared interests, in this case, an affection for cats, to bring people together.

The Worcester Public Library has transformed a potentially mundane administrative task into an opportunity for connection, laughter, and a shared appreciation for our feline companions.
