  • It’s time to share the love, Williamsburg! Just a few days remain for the WMS Kindness Club’s “Have a Heart” campaign. Animal shelters across America house THOUSANDS of homeless pets — but often can’t provide even basic warmth and comfort. The Kindness Club will be collecting new or gently used towels and blankets for donation until the end-of-the-week. Collection bins are located in the main lobby by the library. So “have a heart” and “do your part” to support our furry friends in need!
