Library Lovers' Month - February

Several years ago, library PR *super star* Stephanie Stokes came up with the concept of Library Lovers' Month. Creative book marks are only a start to the fun. Why not take librarians to lunch, make an official Library Lovers' Month proclamation, or plan a fundraiser around the theme.

One middle school used the occasion to invite students to fill out a 3"x5" card about a book they loved and recommended. The card became the "ticket" for a special Library Lovers Lunch in the school library -- students brought their brown bag lunches and were treated to Valentine Day cookies. This was an extra special treat because food was not permitted in the library. The stack of student book recommendation cards was given to a local book store for an upcoming school book fair -- with one of the best book selections ever!
