In a crowd of public officials and business leaders, Eugene Mayor Jim Torrey picked out the one person who could exemplify the purpose of the city\'s first branch library.
He called to the podium 4-year-old Zachary Silva, who bicycled to the former bank building with his mom for Tuesday\'s news conference on the future Bethel library.
Torrey then took off a red-and-white striped hat from Dr. Seuss\' \"Cat in the Hat\" and placed it on the boy\'s head, telling him the popular children\'s book author would \"live\" in the bank vault, soon to be transformed into a children\'s reading room.
