So I can return these Bat-Books to the Bat-Library!
I’m not real clear on why the drop box in front of the Roanoke Public Library has a bat symbol on it. If I had to guess … it’s warning people about bats who might roost under its protruding slot at night? That kinda makes sense.
Downtown Roanoke is no stranger to wildlife. Just last night I saw a mid-sized raccoon scuttle up a tree right off Campbell Avenue — to the delight of a bunch of Labor Day weekend revelers returning from a bar. They were filming its hasty ascent with their cellphones. That raccoon got a lot of laughs.
