I have received the following tips that I have been unable to confirm:
There was a cat living at the University of Tokyo Library on the Hongo campus
in the early 1980's.
There was a cat living at the State Archive of the Russian Federation (GA RF) in Moscow in the mid-1990's.
Three hundred cats once resided in the library of one of the palaces in Saint Petersburg.

If you know of any other library cats in Asia or if the status of a cat listed above has changed, update the Library Cats Map.
