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 youth, libraries entertain them with hands-on activities that expose them to music, art and their first friendships.  Many communities rely on their libraries for meeting space for public forums, socials, 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 Public Library 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!
