The ‘Purr-fect’ 2021 Calendar (Limited Edition)

Purchase the Calendar

Made by librarians for cat fans…

In purchasing this calendar, you are helping us to sustain what we value in our community — whether that be sheltering homeless animals, improving literacy, or dressing up in knit and holding cats. Each month features real, adoptable cats, each alongside one of your favorite librarians from the Morgantown Public Library System. Proceeds from sales directly support the Library System, Homeward Bound WV, and the Marion County Humane Society, WV. We are all nonprofit organizations that have collaborated in this special fundraiser to save our furry friends and enrich the human experience.

We hope you enjoy this calendar as much as we enjoyed putting it together. Thank you for supporting our library and our local animal shelters!

*Copies are also available for sale at the downtown branch (Cash only | 373 Spruce Street, Morgantown, WV 26505)*

The Morgantown Public Library System serves over 100,000 residents living in Monongalia County in the northeastern quarter of West Virginia. The library, its five branches, and four affiliates, work to provide free and open access to information, resources, and experiences through its four core values: service, learning, storytelling, and inclusion. The goal is to transform lives and create a better future for the community.
