I love that February is Library Lovers’ Month! I grew up going to the library all the time. My mom loved to read. A lot.
My fondest memories are going to small bookstores in the area (not many of those around any longer) and the library. My favorite library to visit, with my mom, was the downtown St. Paul library. She would tell me about the time period in her 20’s when she worked at that library. I think that was her first “real” job. She would light up telling me about her fun experiences with the people she worked with there.
For a long time, before having my own kids, I really didn’t visit the library. That changed when I became a mom. We are fortunate in Dakota Country (in Minnesota) to have some great libraries. I like to spend the summers at the library with my kids; they have so many wonderful programs, for both kids and adults.
Over on Etsy, you can find so many great finds, just perfect for your book lovers. I like to give a book (or 2) to my boys for Valentine’s day (not just candy). A book will outlast any box of candy.
