Get a Book Date for Valentine's Day!

Books will always love you and be there for you. It’s one of those comforting facts of life. In a lot of ways they’re better than people. I mean, they don’t wake you up in the night, they wait until you're ready for them, they don’t eat your food, and the list goes on. So, in recognition of that fact, we recommend that instead of making sure you have a date tonight, you should celebrate this Valentine’s Day right by visiting the library and getting a great book to read. Here’s some of our recommendations to try:

Library Beautification Day!
