Love Your Library Week 2014

Wed, 02/05/2014 - 5:14pm

Love Your Library Week Returns to the Harold B. Lee Library

The Harold B. Lee Library’s annual Love Your Library Week starts on Feburary 11. Tuesday through Friday on level 3, the main floor, the library will offer a wheel of prizes. Spin the wheel, answer a question and you can win a limited edition Love Your Library t-shirt, a “Love Magnet Pen,” … or at least a bite of chocolate.

The libary is also bringing back the popular library hearts. Stop by the booth and write a love note to the library and we will post it on the wall!

Last year’s favorite feature, the blind date with a book, returns. This year we will also offer videos, for those of you who are not ready to commit to an entire book.

On Valentine’s Day the library is hosting a photobooth from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. Stop by to have you picture taken with your favorite book, a friend, spouse, or a charming stranger you meet in line.

All activities are free.
