    We know how it is - you live for the last weekend in February when you can buy all the books you want for practically nothing at the annual Friends of the Library Sale (save the date - February 25-26, 2017). You buy all the books you can carry out of the fairgrounds, hoping they last you all year. We do the same thing!

    Whether you’re a fan of love or cringe at the idea of Valentine’s Day, you can’t escape that love is in the air in February. It’s a month afflicted with paper hearts in pink and red, chalky conversation hearts flirting ‘U R Cute’ and ‘C U L8R’ and enough chocolate and roses to choke a cupid. The expectations of this Hallmark Holiday leave many a star-crossed wisher feeling devoid of warm fuzzies….but there is one place that you can always go to feel the love and that’s your library.

    Before you pluck daisy petals while reciting he/she loves me, he/she loves me not, empty out your rolling suitcase and spend the weekend at the Friends of the Library Annual Booksale on Feb. 20 & 21. The biggest booksale of the year is the icing on your sugar cookie where you can shop to your heart’s delight while still maintaining a
    healthy relationship with your wallet. Read more in this month’s info.

    Count the ways we love you with this month’s reviews, programs and special events. We think you will find something to love here with our offerings of books, movies, music and opportunities to learn, laugh and explore. You + Us, that sounds like a partnership built to last.

    Does your year start in February when you can buy all the books you want for practically nothing at the Friends of the Library Sale? (Dates for the sale this year are February 27 & 28th, by the way)  What happens when you’ve participated in Summer Reading and have read everything you bought at the sale?  Well, of course you can check out some books at the library… OR, if you want your very own copies to keep, you can come to the Friends of the Library Buy the Box Sale!
