Love the Library!

February is Library Lover's Month

Move over Valentines Day, February is Library Lovers' Month, a celebration created by library supporters in honor of libraries of all types. It is clear that Pinellas County residents love their libraries! They really love checking out library materials with over 5 million items checked out last year, they also love attending over 12,000 free programs offered at their public libraries. The wonderful thing about public libraries is that they offer something to everyone. They have unlimited stories lovingly stored on their shelves patiently waiting for you to experience them. Access to a world of knowledge is just inside the doors to your public library or at a tap of button on your phone, tablet, or computer. Whether you are making new friends at a book club meeting, using a 3D printer for the first time, or downloading an audiobook for your commute home, your public library offers books and so much more!

Pinellas County library supporters have demonstrated their love for libraries in a number of ways:

  • Joining their local Friends of the Library group.
  • Volunteering on Teen Advisory Groups.
  • Donating money to expand library services.
  • Attendingfreelibraryprograms.
  • Using their library's free online databases or checking out e-books or audiobooks from home.
  • Reserving meeting spaces.
  • Nominating their public library and library staff for prestigious awards.
  • Donating new & lightly used books and DVD's to their library's collection.
  • Volunteering as a literacy tutor.
  • Promoting and advocating for libraries with local and state government.
