Chil­dren share the love at the li­brary

Nor'wester (Springdale) - - FRONT PAGE -

Love was in the air at the Spring­dale Pub­lic Li­brary Satur­day as Valen­tine’s Day was cel­e­brated a lit­tle early by some.

Chil­dren, wear­ing red or pink, learned about and cel­e­brated the oc­ca­sion at the story time pro­gram. “Love” was their re­sponse when li­brar­ian Judy Hamil­ton asked what Valen­tine’s Day meant. The love was shared be­tween li­brary staff, and the chil­dren with some par­ents and grand­par­ents.

Hamil­ton led the pro­gram with a read­ing from David Petersen’s “Snowy Valen­tine,” which was fol­lowed by some singing and the cre­ation of a Valen­tine’s Day craft. The Valen­tine’s Day dance game — in which the chil­dren had to find the hearts with words as­so­ci­ated with the oc­ca­sion — was a big hit, as were the prizes.

It was an awe­some day at the li­brary to share the love.
