Well, you probably already know that we love libraries. Pretty much, we are all about the coolness and awesomeness of libraries! (Technically, that’s essentially a job description for us; but it would be true no matter what!)
So each weekday in February, we have been sharing an interesting program from a randomly selected library across Minnesota. You can find all of them on social media at #LoveYourMNLibrary, and definitely add in some good things about your own library!!
Here are just a few of the facts we found about Minnesota libraries:
- We love libraries! Each day in Feb, we will share a fun library fact about a MN public library doing something amazing. We have a list of all of them, and will randomly draw names to share. Chime in to share other lovely facts using #LoveYourMNLibrary ! #LibraryLoversMonth
- #LoveYourMNLibrary Today we celebrate the excitement of Super (Science!) Saturday happening at the Zumbrota Public Library! Bottles + Balloons – you know that’s going to be so fun!!
- #LoveYourMNLibrary Connecting to your community is great! The Owatonna Public Library is hosting a #CaptureOwatonna Photo Contest – with winning photos displayed in the library! Great work @owatonnalibrary!
- #LoveYourMNLibrary Book groups are always fun! And the Gilbert Public Library will have the next meeting of their Cookbook Club Tue Feb 20! Cookbooks are always fun, and can stimulate good discussion! Does your book group talk cookbooks?
- #LoveYourMNLibrary Are you ready to make some valentines? The Foley Public Library is hosting a Valentine’s Day Make and Take program for kids!! Go, take a kid, and make some nice cards to give to your favorite library staffer! Yay @GRiverLibrary
- #LoveYourMNLibrary Have you visited the Hopkins branch of the Hennepin County Public Library yet?? In addition to other cool stuff, they have a searchable database of art in the library! Great work, @hclib!
It is a good idea to take a moment to step back and realize just how awesome libraries are – and how truly valuable we are to the communities we are serving! In the bustle of everyday work, it can be too easy to forget that.
Celebrate the love-filled month of February online with the #LoveYourMNLibrary #LibraryLoversMonth messages!!
