On Friday, February 11th, Edenvale Library had a Valentine's Day Craft program that drew over 30 people. Parents and children worked on creating personalized cards for each other. If you are interested in books that have directions for crafts for Valentine's Day, one perennial favorite is Valentine Crafts by Judith Corwin. There are many other Valentine's Day Craft books containing creative directions for projects.
With Valentine’s Day coming up, why not cuddle up on the sofa and watch a romantic film?
Here are some suggestions for the warm at heart…(release dates in parentheses).
Paris, Je T’Aime (2006) Eighteen short films depicting different types of love that take place in 18 of the 20 arrondissements in Paris. The film is embellished with gorgeous, scenic transitions between shorts, and is among my favorites!
You’ve Got Mail (1998) Two romantics who correspond via email are unaware that their sweetheart is the same person for whom they feel disdain. This film is a remake of a previous film, The Shop Around the Corner (1940), with James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan, and updated to reflect current technology and society.
Each Friday at 4:00PM the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library offers Friday Fun. The month of February has some fantastic, fun, friendly programs. On February 4th the children had a great time making musical instruments; coming up there will be a Valentine Card Craft, Mural Making and the Art of Japanese Calligraphy with Hikaru. So check out Friday Fun; it's a great way to start off your weekend! Of course the library offers many books on Valentine Crafts, Calligraphy and Every Day Crafts, check them out!
