Library taking part in ‘31 Days of Love’ campaign for pets


The Cumberland County Public Library is participating in the “31 Days of Love” campaign to benefit animals at the county animal shelter.

All library locations are accepting donations of pet supplies — including pet food, toys and blankets — for animals that are sheltered at Cumberland County Animal Services. Donations may be dropped off at any of the library branches, the library said in a news release.

Cumberland County Animal Services has a donation wish list on its website
