Seeking donations for animals in need
This summer, the Hamilton Township Library is teaming up with Two Men and a Truck® movers to help animals in need. We’ve placed a “Movers for Mutts” donation box in our lobby to collect necessary items for stray pets and animals in foster care. All donations will be given to Res-Q-Pets, a non-profit, all volunteer animal rescue organization. Items such as cat and dog food, flea treatment, toys, bedding and more would be greatly appreciated!
Read any good books lately?
If the answer is “yes,” and you would like to recommend a certain title to your fellow readers, just fill out a card at our Reference Desk. We’ll post your review on the bulletin board near the front entrance!
