Glendale Central Library

Best Library Collections, April 2009
Canine and avian enthusiasts might never browse the cat collection at the Glendale Central Library, but they’d be missing out. Comprising several hundred books, drawers stuffed with ephemera (cards, clippings), photos, and odds and ends (show trophies, figurines), this is devotion—and whimsy—writ large. A local cat club donated much of the material in the 1960s. Worth telling Fluffy about: a 1957 Puss in Boots pop-up.
