We've All Been Wrong About Something

Hello Kitty's just another human child... who can be found at your local library.

Did you see the news? Turns out Hello Kitty is not a cat.

I know. I'm shocked too.

According to this LA Times article, Sanrio, the company that produces Hello Kitty, emphatically reports that Hello Kitty is a human child, and points out that she has a cat of her own

Surprising. However, if you're a parent of a kid who's obsessed with the red-bowed paragon of cuteness, you probably don't give a Bad Badtz-Maru what she is--you just want to silence the demand for Hello Kitty products that echoes through your home day and night. And you'd like to do it without spending any money. Guess who's here to help? The Oakland Public Library, of course.


We have a variety of Hello Kitty books, comics, and movies on our shelves.

And if you're just plain tired of her furry little face? Allow me to suggest some other adorably illustrated titles that may please. Mew mew.
