National Library Lover’s Month

Feb 1, 2022

February is a month to celebrate the love of many things. On Valentine’s Day, we celebrate the love of a significant other or close friendship. We also honor the history of African Americans in our country, and the birthdays of past presidents. But did you know that we celebrate our love of libraries this month, too?

This year, Valentine’s Day shares the same date as National Library Lover’s Day! This is a day (or month) to celebrate the love of the buildings that are devoted to reading, collecting, categorizing, studying, exploring, and otherwise loving books. However, libraries aren’t just about books these days. They have transformed into the gateways to information, no matter how it’s accessed. This means that at the library, you can:

  • Read and research with physical books
  • Access the internet on computers
  • Check out DVDs and video games to watch/play at home
  • Attend fun, interesting, and informational programs
  • Have access to eBooks and audiobooks

In some libraries, you can even access genealogical records and peruse historical newspapers. You can celebrate National Library Lover’s month by, of course, visiting the Rogers Public Library or any other library in the area. You can also make a social media post or tweet about what you love about your library. If you don’t have a library card yet, this month would be a great opportunity to get one! If you don’t want to come in to the library, then make a list of books that you want to check out in the future, or write a story about visiting a library. Here are some books specifically about libraries, if you want to celebrate that way:
