The last day of January is here (already!) and February, the shortest month of the year, is about to make it’s entrance. February may be short but it’s an important time of year. Lest you need to be reminded, Valentine’s Day is almost upon us. It is the one day of the year that is specially set aside to let those we care about, whether in a friendly or romantic way, know just how much they mean to us.
And, of course, the libraries want to help you celebrate Valentine’s Day. Two of our lovely smaller libraries, Niles Library and Irvington Library, will be having programs in which the whole family is invited to participate. Both programs will be led by Christie of Christie’s Creative Cupboard.
Niles Library program will be on Tuesday, February 10 at 3:30 PM. Families will have the opportunity to work together on Valentine greetings. All supplies will be provided for this free program. Due to space limitations, participation is available upon a first-come basis. So arrive a little early and be prepared to have fun!
Irvington Library will have a program the following day, Wednesday, February 11 at 3:30 PM. This program will be a little different. Families will have the fun of working together to make a beautiful, tissue-decorated cardboard heart. This will be fun to keep as a decoration for your home or to give as a gift. Free tickets will be given out 15 minutes prior to the program, so please be on time to get your place! This program is also free, and all materials are provided.
Hope you can make it to one or both of these fun programs. Happy, Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
