How To Love Your Library
Library Lovers' Month
February
Library supporters create a celebration of their very own in honor of libraries.

Library Lovers' Month is a month-long celebration of school, public, and private libraries of all types. This is a time for everyone, especially library support groups, to recognize the value of libraries and to work to assure that the Nation's libraries will continue to serve.

* Wisconsin Library Association Advocates!
The Wiconsin Library Association (WLA) has designated February 2009 as "Library Lovers' Month", complete with a proclamation by Gov. Jim Doyle. WLA asks you to encourage your patrons to send a valentine to a legislator! Let them show legislators their appreciation for elected officials, but also how much they love their library. Templates, artwork and TIP SHEET for downloading.
