Just next to it is the kitty a member brought to the Greek library, a truly unobtrusive pet, as it is always asleep on the "Dracula" shelf, waiting to be bitten, probably!
Below you can see Ioanna's Eguptian kitten. She follows her everywhere!
Δείτε την αληθινή ιστορία ενός γάτου, που λεγόταν Dewey Διαβαστερός και ζούσε στη βιβλιοθήκη. Ο κόσμος ερχόταν να τον δει από τις γύρω περιοχές για τα καμώματά του. Πέθανε υπέργηρος και ευτυχισμένος στην αγκαλιά της βιβλιοθηκαρίου που τον μάζεψε από γατάκι. Στη διπλανή φωτογραφία είναι το γατάκι της δικής μας βιβλιοθήκης. Μεγάλος υπναράς.
Και πιο κάτω είναι η γάτα της Ιωάννας που την ακολουθεί παντού!
Ο Dewey ο γάτος, πήρε το όνομά του από τον Melvil Dewey, που πριν από 100 χρόνια σκέφτηκε ένα απλό και έξυπνο τρόπο να ταξινομεί από 10 μέχρι ... εκατομμύρια βιβλία! Διαβάστε εδώ για περισσότερα!

Telis’ true story
Telis had a lot of names before his accident. He was a dog students remember waiting for them in the school yard or outside the school door, as stray dogs aren’t allowed inside schools. He is nearly four years old.
In October 2008 he got struck by a vehicle, most probably a motorbike which he likes to chase. A group of students hurried to the library to get help. His rear leg was hanging lose. It was broken.
The students gathered money and we had Telis’ leg bound. We couldn’t afford an operation, unfortunately. In order for him not to bite his wound we had him wear a special collar. Teachers brought food and bought him a doghouse. Students took care to feed him in weekends. But Telis escaped from the bars and his leg couldn’t heal as it was supposed to. So he remains lame.
He was adopted by our school, named after it “Aristoteleio” and got his medical booklet and his digital id, as the law demands. He is the guardian of the library, he is always there when the Reading Club discusses books and takes a nap in the art Department (because it is quiet) and the Religion Department (because it is near the airconditioning. Some doubts remain as to if Telis is a believer). He sometimes gets himself into trouble in dogfights. Then he is taken to the vet by his fan club (consisting of a couple of teachers and a few hundreds pair of eyes watching him and reporting to the library, the “Telis-net”). He is very well-behaved, very smart and as independent as a ...cat.
He was there at the 5th anniversary of etwinning wearing a birthday hat. But he got no cake, just an extra piece of sausage, which he gobbled up.
With Telis, we learnt to change the way we see an abandoned animal. We got to know him as a character rather than one of many stray dogs with a two-year life expectancy. He loves children, we love him. That is the story of Telis the Library dog!
