A contractor doing repairs in the bookstore last week reported that he had heard a thump and looked across the room to see a book lying in the middle of the floor where there certainly hadn’t been a book before. No other books were disturbed and the worker claimed he was nowhere near the shelf the book came from. He seemed surprised and little bit spooked as he repeated his story to different library workers.
Melville seems pretty active these days! Maybe he enjoys the attention? Maybe the maintenance worker disturbed his cat-nap? Maybe cats just like to get up onto shelves and counters and knock things over?
