February is full of amazing things to celebrate like Black History Month, Groundhog Day for the littles and it's also the month of love. It's a time to reflect and celebrate people or places that you love. It's been about five years since I've done any sort of "love my library" kind of promotion so I thought it was time.

Participation in these kinds of promotions is always iffy, so I tore off a smallish piece of bulletin board paper - about four feet wide - to hang in the hallway outside the media center. I have a round table that sits smack dab in the middle of the path when you enter the library (it's really about 12 feet in, I don't want anyone to hurt themselves!) and that's where I set up pencils and a stack of white and pink paper heart die cuts. In case you're wondering, the blue box is my suggestion box.

At first, there were only a few. Then I hung them in the hall. People started reading them. They stopped me in the hall to ask if they could write one. I shrugged, "Sure," then paused and gave then squinted my eyes, "But ONLY if you really love the library." Most everyone laughed and then went on to fill out a heart. I was surprised and touched when I caught some teachers filling out hearts too. They did notice my hard work! :)

Some of my favorite responses are listed below. Responses are typed with the spelling used.
