Are the librarians batty? Allowing BATS to read books? What are they thinking in Brighton?

Batty’s bio:

Batty is from Austin, TX, but he loves to summer in Monroe County, hanging out under the old bridges over the Genesee River downtown. The other MCLS mascots are nice enough to read to him, because Batty’s eyesight isn’t very good. He prefers to read dark, scary stories, but he also loves non-fiction books about bugs (yummy).
