The Guernsey Memorial Library in Norwich will host Meet a New Friend, a Chenango SPCA (CSPCA) adoption and information event, from 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 17.

Area residents are invited to stop by to meet some adorable, adoptable cats and learn about the CSPCA’s program. Guests can enter a raffle and chow down on some “critter-themed” snacks.

The library is also hosting Chow For Fines to benefit the CSPCA throughout the month of January. Bring a donation of non-perishable dog or cat food or litter and your Guernsey Memorial Library overdue fines will be forgiven. There is no limit on the number or amount of fines that can be cleared.

Bills for lost or damaged library items or items that have been referred to collection are not eligible. Items that have been borrowed from other libraries are not included in this program.

Donations of bleach, disinfecting wipes, paper towels and Pine Sol are also being accepted for the CSPCA.

The Guernsey Memorial Library is located at 3 Court St. in Norwich. For information, visit, email or call 607-334-4034.
