We have recently acquired many of Miss Cookson’s school scrapbooks. Many of the the pictures are not labeled. If you had children, went to a North Lyon County school, or were a teacher, please come help us get them labeled.
The rotating book van is a service from the North Central Kansas Library System. We receive around 350 books that then rotate out in eight (8) weeks. This adds around 2,100 books to our collection, throughout the year. We have everything from picture books, Young Adult, Adult Fiction, Adult Non-fiction, mystery, Science Fiction, Inspirationals, and Westerns. Need large print? We have that too on the book van. Come in the library and look around the pink and purple book carts!
Did you know, like most of our holidays, Valentine’s Day, was originally a Pagan celebration called Lupercalia. Lupercalia, celebrated during mid-February, involved a ritualized animal sacrifice and matchmaking, in hopes to keep evil spirits and infertility away.
Since there are 3 known Saint Valentines, it is unclear which the holiday is named after. All we know, is that his stories make him seem like a sympathetic, heroic, and romantic person.
February 14th, was once believed to be the beginning of bird mating season in France and England. This helped to add the idea of romance to Valentine’s Day.
Today there are many different ways to celebrate, but all usually involved sharing a note about our care and love for the person.
More information on Valentine’s Day can be found here.
