Love is in the air at the library

Illustration of hearts

There are many great love stories on our shelves, but our favorite love story of all is our love for our amazing patrons! Share the love this season with crafts and community events to connect with the special people in your life.

Bring the warm and fuzzies (and box of tissues) home with you with our extensive romance novel collection. Be sure to check out books such as: The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks, Call Me By Your Name by André Aciman and Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. Or, borrow movies such as The Big Sick, Roman Holiday and Titanic.
