Local Author Craig Nagel was at the Pine River Public Library this winter to talk about his new book,
A Place Called Home: Moments from an ordinary life.
The Pine River Public Library is also the
home of Browser the Library Cat. Browser was a stray cat that came to the
library in Pine River when he was about 9 months old, this was the spring of
2002. He was quite a friendly cat. One of the staff members at the library
decided to feed him tuna which he loved and started coming back to the library
every day. He would be sitting at the back door every morning waiting to come in
and get fed. When the library moved to it's present location, the kids helped
move Browser along with the books. This is when the staff decided to keep
Browser on as the newest member of the library family. The move was completed
He has been featured on the local PBS station and with helps writes a month Library Lore Column for the local paper.
