Love is in the air this February.
For many libraries here and around the world, it's National Library Lovers’ Month!
Library Lovers' Month is for those people who adore reading, research, exploring new ideas and technologies, catching up with magazines and newspapers, or simply meeting up with friends, especially where good coffee is available.
Public Libraries provide so much more than a place to enjoy great novels or to self-educate, to discover amazing scientific exploits, and to find untold histories. Libraries can help you write that winning job application or research paper by providing a quiet space to study, and access to helpful staff ready to assist you on your fact-finding mission.
For pre-schoolers, libraries entertain with hands-on activities and performances exposing them to music, art, and their first friendships. Many communities rely on their library’s meeting space for public forums, socials, fundraisers, and classes.
Libraries lend not only books but music, movies, games, and toys. Rotating art displays give local artists exposure to the community. Larger libraries provide preservation services, preserving social histories, treasured books, periodicals, and documents for future generations.
Make a date with your library this Valentine’s Day! It’s never too late to fall in love! Visit your local library and go on a blind date with a book. You never know what it might lead to!
