Valentine’s Day @ Your Library

February 6, 2012 at 12:00 am

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and at the library, we are getting into the spirit with several events and activities for kids and teens leading up to February 14. 

For the minor crowd at your house, consider craft and gift-making, (including custom candy bars), a Valentine’s Day dance and even an Un-Valentine’s Day event featuring zombies!  Check out our Valentine’s event calendar for location information and other details for these programs.

Though the exact origins of Valentine’s Day are a bit unclear, we do know that the month of February is celebrated as a time of romance, friendship and love.

Did you know….
…that sending written valentines dates back to the Middle Ages?
…that in addition to the U.S., Valentine’s Day is celebrated in Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, France, Australia, Denmark, Italy and Japan?
… that the Greeting Card Association estimates that over 160 million cards will be sent this year for Valentine’s Day? 

Kids can learn more about this holiday by exploring our catalog filled with children’s Valentine’s Day books and movies.

For more information about the programs described above as well as other FREE programs @ your library®, call (813) 273-3652 or visit
