February is National Library Lover’s Month From shelves of novels to bustling story times to open meeting spaces, this month is dedicated to those who love every aspect of library service. Libraries have come a long way from the silent book warehouses of yesteryear. They are more than a quiet place for retreat and research; now, libraries are centers of education, recreation, and connection. They allow children to expand their world by encouraging exploration and friendship development. They offer adults in the community a place to gather, connect, and learn from one another in classes, workshops, and clubs. They offer families many avenues of free entertainment, whether in person or by borrowing books, movies, and music all without cost to them. This month is dedicated to those who treasure their libraries and, thus, make all of this possible. Last Chance to Win
