The Pete the Cat “Be a Cool Cat ... Read” event takes place at 10 a.m. at the Decatur Library front lobby. Fans can have their photo taken with Dean, who will sign the cards and Pete the Cat books, which are for sale.
Dean, a Georgia native who has an electrical engineering degree, took basic drawing classes. He and author Eric Litwin, also a Georgia native, created the popular cool cat.
The cards also are available at all DeKalb County Public Library branches and online starting Sept. 1. They are not offered as a My First Card for patrons up to 4 years old.
The collector, limited-edition Pete the Cat library card carries the same privileges, rights and responsibilities as a regular library card and can be renewed every two years with no new donation.
The Decatur Library is at 215 Sycamore St. in downtown Decatur. For more information, visit www.dekalb
