The Oak Park Public Library gerbils

Critics' Picks

Sadly, the Oak Park Public Library's first mascot gerbil, Ramona Nibbles, passed away in March after having served honorably for over two years. In April, however, benevolent patrons donated three new gerbils to the library. After soliciting names for the arrivals, staff settled on Henry, Ralph, and Mudge (characters from the Beverly Cleary kids' books). Library communications coordinator Sharon Grimm reports that the adorable little critters are faring well and have turned out to be "very speedy" chewers of cardboard.
