Love Your Library!
February means Valentine's Day and the month brings you many opportunities to love your library. February is also Black History Month. Come check out a special art exhibit in honor of the occasion. Personalities by Dr. Michael Shelton will be on display at the Washington Park Branch. The exhibit features life-size figures in oil. Join us at the branch to meet the artist during the opening reception on Tuesday, February 5 from 5 to 7 p.m.
Next we have a delicious opportunity to show your love for the library. All you have to do is dine at Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza at 8031 Turkey Lake Road any Tuesday in February. Tell your server you're there to support the library and the restaurant will donate 20 percent of your bill to the Orange County Library System. How simple is that?
Wrap up your month on a musical note when Derek of Derek and the Slammers performs live at the Edgewater Branch Library. The concert is Saturday, February 23 at 2:30 p.m. This free family event brings fresh fun to the library and is yet one more way to celebrate February with us. Hope to see you there!
