State Library Accepting Donations for Humane Society in October

Augusta - In honor of October being “Adopt a Shelter Dog Month,” the Maine State Library is accepting donations of dog food and toys for shelter dogs at the Kennebec Valley Humane Society.

Throughout the month of October, patrons are welcome to bring in donations and place them in the donation box near the circulation desk. Library staff have also created a collection table featuring a variety of books of interest to dog lovers.

Keeping with the theme, the Friends of the Maine State Library will present David Rosenfelt, author of “Dog Tripping” at a special event at the Blaine House on November 18. For more information on how to reserve a spot at this event, please contact 207-287-5620.
