Love Your Library Week

Staff at the Comox Valley branches of the Vancouver Island Regional Library want to feel your love.

Staff at the Comox Valley branches of the Vancouver Island Regional Library want to feel your love.

Come and celebrate Love Your Library Week, which runs from Feb. 11 to 16, and show your appreciation by dropping into the library and participating in its activities.

The Courtenay, Comox, Cumberland, Union Bay and Hornby Island library branches are holding a Kiss Contest where participants have the opportunity to guess the amount of Hershey Kisses in a glass jar for a prize (of course, this includes the chocolate!).

Participants will also be invited to write a Valentine expressing why they love the library.

This is your chance to recognize the important role that libraries play in the cultural and economic success of local communities like ours.

Come to the library and tell them why you love this valuable community resource.
