Happy February! February is one of my favorite months because it is known as the month of love and friendship. We start seeing people wearing brighter colored clothes and lots of pink and red hearts are everywhere you go. We get to celebrate Valentine’s Day which is a great opportunity to tell people just how much you care about them.
You can read more about Valentine’s Day and St. Valentine at the library. We have a book titled Valentine’s Day by Terri Sievet that tells how Valentine’s Day came about. Author Terri Sievert, points out that Valentine’s Day is celebrated differently from country to country. It is fun to read how other countries celebrate this day of friendship and love.
You are invited to make a valentine for a friend, teacher, or family member during your visit to the library. I will also be collecting valentines to give to senior citizens within our community. Craft materials, paper, and stickers are available at the tables by the Children’s Desk.
Be creative and enjoy this heartwarming month!
