February is Library Lovers’ Month!

February is Library Lovers’ Month, “a month-long celebration of school, public, and private libraries of all types. This is a time for everyone to recognize the value of libraries and to work to assure that the Nation’s libraries will continue to serve.”

A library is much more than a place to borrow books or to study. Libraries offer educational, civic, and entertaining programs and continue to play an important role within local communities. The entire month of February is dedicated to the people who love whole buildings devoted to the reading, housing, organizing, categorizing, finding, studying, and otherwise loving books.  It’s National Library Lovers’ Month!

Libraries provide so much more than a place for us to enjoy great novels or to discover amazing adventures and untold history.  Yes, they help us ace our research papers and provide a quiet space to study, but they do so much more.

For preschoolers, libraries entertain them with hands-on activities and expose them to their first friendships.  Many communities rely on their libraries for a meeting space for public meetings, social events, and classes.  Libraries lend not only books, but magazines and movies.  Libraries offer many kinds of programs for all ages all year long.

When was the last time you spent time in the library?  If it’s been awhile, there’s no better time to stop in at Kewanna Union Township Public Library than during Library Lovers’ Month.  Browse the shelves, check out a book or two, sit down and read, or attend an event. Fall in love all over again!
