PPLC Program Guide

February is Library Lovers Month

Erica McCaleb, PPLC Countywide Services Coordinator

While Valentine's Day may be February's most famous day, February is also National Library Lover's Month, an annual celebration of the love that communities have for their libraries. We know that Pinellas County residents love their public libraries. Residents checked out over 5,674,291 materials from Pinellas public libraries last year, and attended over 12,626 free library programs!

Some patrons just enjoy the intoxicating smell and sight of countless books lovingly collected and displayed on library shelves ...!

Pinellas County has 24 public library locations, both large and small. Each of these libraries is as unique as the community it serves. From the tool lending library at the Safety Harbor Public Library to the Makerspace STEAM lab at the Tarpon Springs Public Library, public libraries adapt their collections to suit the needs of their communities. Despite their differences, each library is dedicated to providing free access to resources and materials to all members of its community.

So how do you show your love and appreciation for your public library? It's easy! You can inquire about volunteer opportunities or join your local Friends of the Library or Teen group. You can consider giving a donation to your public library. Public libraries work on limited budgets and resources, so community contributions help to enhance the wealth of materials, programs and services provided by your library. Perhaps most importantly, you can stop by your local library to participate in a library event, stop by the reference desk with a question, take a child to story time, or just browse the shelves for a good book to take home with you.

The greatest gift for your library to receive during Library Lovers Month is to be used and loved by its community!

There are several reasons to love your public library:

  • Free story times, events, and classes that bring people together.
  • Access to databases containing a vast array of information.
  • Expansive collections of educational and recreational reading materials.
  • A wide range of specialized services.
  • Digital offerings such as online databases, e-books, audiobooks, magazines, music and movie streaming.
