For hundreds of years friends and lovers have celebrated Valentine’s Day. In earlier times gloves were given as a token of affection. People of wealth gave jewelry and many young men and women made gifts. Love letters and poems were also popular. The Golden Age of the Valentine card was in the middle of the 19th century. The cards were romantic and elaborately decorated with lace, glitter, sequins, fabric, and words of affection. Today we will learn the history of the Valentine and make a basic card.
Supplies: Basic supplies will be provided. To decorate your card please bring such items as sequins, lace, ribbon, pictures, small artificial flowers, stickers and a needle & thread. *A few pairs of scissors and some glue will be available to share, but please feel free to bring your own.
Join some fellow letter lovers at the library for a friendly game or two of Scrabble on a cold Sunday afternoon. The first game starts around 2 p.m.and subsequent games may follow depending on the time and mood! Please register so that we know how many game sets to have on hand. This event is for ages 12 and up, although younger kids are welcome to come and partner with their parent.
