Happy Valentine’s Day!

heartsFriday is coming and with it, Valentine’s Day! Now you might be one of the ones who are thinking about flowers, cards, gifts and such. If so, congrats! However, you might be one of the ones who are celebrating Un-Valentine’s Day by doing something nice for yourself or with friends. Here’s a few suggestions: Write a list of something that makes you happy and put it on the mirror! Buy one of those chocolates-filled hearts and share with your friends! Or maybe (and yeah, we’re gonna throw it out there, cuz this *is* a library blog) you can read a book! In deference to the holiday, let us present some titles for your romantic reading pleasure!

Here Comes V-Day!

Valentine’s Day: Either the best day ever with your sweetie or the most pointless waste of cardstock and roses that you’ve ever encountered.

Good news- if you’re in love, music makes it better. The right songs can make you feel even more devoted to your honey and your forever hookup.

Good news- if you think love sucks, music makes it better. The right songs can make you feel on top of the world, footloose and proud to be single.

Did you know you can download free (legal!) music from the library with your card? You can have 3 MP3s a week that are totally yours, forever.

Check out these Screenr videos to see how it’s done-

Internet Explorer:
 

Firefox:

You can do it through Chrome too- looks a lot like Firefox.
