Our new display is up on the large table in the Children’s Room. This month’s celebrates aspects of February including – but not limited to! – Valentine’s Day. In addition to Valentine’s, there are multiple other holidays this month. These include President’s Day, which is celebrated on the third Monday of the month – February 17th this year. This holiday gets its date from both George Washington and Abraham Lincoln’s birthdays being in February (the 22nd and 12th, respectively). This particular February also features the Winter Olympics, which run from the 7th to the 23rd. The entire month is also designated as Black History Month – a time to honor notable historical and contemporary figures.
Our display pays homage to all of these aspects of February, featuring biographies of inspiring figures like Booker T. Washington, Sojourner Truth and Rosa Parks, books on the presidents, items related to the Olympics and winter sports, and – of course- materials for Valentine’s Day. Stop by and grab one of these picks – a great option if you don’t have much time to browse. And, remember to check back, as we’ll add new items to the table when the selection starts to dwindle!
