This special library in Anchorage, Alaska lends out a wide variety of animal skulls, pelts, and stuffed mounts to the general public, and is used for classroom teaching, personal learning, and entertainment.
And while the collection is not open for browsing, all items are in the library’s catalog and can be requested. Items circulate for two weeks, and patrons must sign a statement of responsibility that indicates they are financially responsible for the item while it’s in their possession.
More information about this program, including lots of interesting pictures and quotes from the Alaska Department of Fish and Game librarian (what an amazing job title!) can be found at the Alaska Dispatch News.
