At Kirkwood Public Library we are all about Romance during the month of February!  Whether you like your romance hot and spicy, warm and fuzzy, or with a dose of humor thrown in, you can find something to your liking here.  Like Library Valentines 2surprises?  Then check out our cart of “blind dates” – gift-wrapped surprises to plan your evening for you!

Want to return the love?  We are collecting Valentine’s from our patrons – boxes and cards are available on the main level and in the children’s department as well.

For those who dislike the lovey-dovey aspect of February 14, we have something for you, too!  Join us for the Anti-Valentine’s Day Party,  hosted by the Teen Department at 5:30 pm, and “take the love out of Valentine’s Day!”  We also have a great collection of books and movies for those who do not celebrate this particular holiday.  Come on by and see us!!
