We all know that Valentine’s Day is in February but did you know that February is also Library Lovers’ Month? That’s right, the entire month is dedicated to celebrating the place that so many of us hold near and dear to our heart—the library. This magical place is devoted to reading, organizing, finding, studying, preserving, and adoring books. Libraries also offer a place to work on group projects, access computers, and enjoy special exhibits. They provide a quiet, safe space for reflection, comfortable seating for relaxing, and archives full of unique treasures. And, of course, libraries offer intelligent, dedicated staff, who provide a variety of services including valuable research help! Join us this month in celebrating all the great libraries out there—past, present and future!
