The library is holding “Furtales” story time on Sunday, March 18. Kids aged 6 to 12 can practice their reading skills alongside adoptable cats from Furkids Animal Rescue and Shelters, a Doraville-based rescue.

Furkids is Georgia’s largest no-kill rescue and shelter organization, according to its website. It houses 275 cats in a cage-free facility in Doraville. The felines are given nearly free reign of the 10,000-square-foot space, with soft napping spots and toys interspersed throughout.

The Furtales story event will be held from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. at Furkids' Doraville facility, located at 2650 Pleasantdale Road, Suite 8. Find all of Furkids' adoptable cats at its website.
