National Pet Food Donation Month at the Library

May is National Pet Food Donation Month. Please help us celebrate our local furry friends by stopping in at the Garrettsville Library, a branch of the Portage County District Library, where we will be collecting any type of pet food to give to a local animal shelter. As our way of saying thanks for helping out our four-pawed neighbors, each pet food item donated (think can of cat food, bag of doggie treats, etc.) will earn a chance to win our pet-themed raffle basket filled with books and other items any pet-human will love.

For more information or to bring in your donation, drop by the Reference Desk or call (330) 527-4378 any time when the library is open in the whole month of May.
