Help Ivy & Bean, the Library Guinea Pigs

Two of the hottest attractions at the library are our guinea pigs, Ivy and Bean! If Ivy and Bean have stolen your hearts, like they’ve stolen ours, consider supporting them.

Ways you can help!


  • Aspen Bedding

  • Toys
  • Fresh Fruits and Veggies
  • Make A Monetary Donation
    A $20 donation provides a week’s worth of supplies for the guinea pigs.


  • Cage Cleaner
    This includes tasks like removing and replacing bedding, sweeping & wiping the cage with cleaner, & refilling water.
  • Wash Bedding
    Taking home dirty guinea pig blankets & washing them.
  • Bring Fresh Food
