I suppose it's appropriate to have National Library Lovers' Month during the same month of Valentine's Day.
For those who love to read and participate in the various activities at their local library, there is a passion among patrons in their support of the facility and all it does for their communities.
I've always considered the library one of the main hubs of any city. In fact, I wouldn't want to live in a city that didn't have a good library. Often when I visit towns in Kentucky, I'll stop by libraries and browse through their collections.
For authors and readers, a library is a great place for readings and book discussions. Authors also can sign copies of their latest book.
I've been fortunate to reside in places in Kentucky with excellent libraries, such as the Paul Sawyier Public Library in Frankfort, Lexington Public Library, and Louisville Free Public Library.
The Friends and Foundations of California Libraries has these recommendations to show your love: Contribute, Be a Friend, Volunteer, and Promote.
If you get a chance over the next couple weeks, go over to you local library and show your love!
Until the next time...
