Kitten trouble at Parkland Library

Bad Kitty makes a visit

A standing-room-only group of parents and kids waited patiently Feb. 9 at Parkland Community Library, South Whitehall, to welcome celebrity Bad Kitty.

Bad Kitty is the name of the main character in a series of children’s books by author Nick Bruel.

Parkland Youth Services Librarian Jaclyn Hoimes first showed the kids how to make a Bad Kitty mask.

When they completed making their masks, Parkland Youth Services Assistant Mary DiMaggio stamped the mask with a Bad Kitty stamp, and the proud parents took photographs of their “kittens” with their cellphones to take home.
