During the month of October, Cumberland County Public Library & Information Center, in partnership with radio station 91.9 WFSS, is accepting donations of pet supplies for animals that are sheltered at the Cumberland County Department of Animal Control. Donations may include: pet food, cat litter, toys, flea-control products, treats, shampoo, plastic crates and carriers. No newspapers, please. Bring items to any of the library's eight locations.
The library is also collecting pet stories and photos to share during the month of October. Pet owners, tell us how your pet made it into your life by emailing your brief pet stories and a photo to ShelterPetAdoption@outlook.com. Also, since Halloween is coming up, if you have a photo of your pet in costume, send it in to join our virtual pet parade. View our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/CumberlandCountyPublicLibrary) to see the online display.
Each library branch is also celebrating 31 Days of Love with pet-related programs, including movies about pets, pet training programs, cat toy craft programs and even adoption events at East Regional and Hope Mills branches. Registration and more information available online.

Since 1998, Up & Coming Weekly has asked the public to cast their vote in the annual Best of Fayetteville awards. In 2014, Cumberland County Public Library & Information Center is honored to receive two awards: Headquarters Library was voted Best Library Branch and the library system, along with Cumberland County Schools, was voted Best Use of Local Tax Dollars.
“We’re glad to hear that people value our Headquarters Library in its urban location,” said Jane Casto, manager of Headquarters Library. “It’s not a quiet location in a small neighborhood, but a bustling, busy library in the heart of downtown.” At right, Jane Casto accepts the award from Up & Coming’s Bill Bowman.
