Library Lovers Month

About Library Lovers Month

Every year Library Lovers Month is celebrated in our county during the month of February. FOLMC and the Montgomery County Library Board present an annual family-friendly kickoff celebration, where the County Executive and council members join us to recognize the value of libraries in our community.

Throughout the month of February, library branches and FOLMC Chapters will host special events and activities to celebrate math all month long and highlight the variety of resources and offerings MCPL provides year-round that help foster a love of science and exploration. It also provides a stimulating environment to celebrate mathematics and develop numeracy skills.

Library patrons are encouraged to fill out postcards telling us why you love your library. We share these postcards with your local representatives during advocacy season to remind them why our libraries are essential to our community.

You can also tell us why you love your library. Just fill out a postcard while at your branch, download a “I Love Libraries Because…” flyer, or share a photo on FOLMC’s Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram pages (be sure to tag #ILoveMyLibrary and #LibrariesBytheNumbers).

Library Lovers Month Kickoff 2020 was sponsored in partnership with the Montgomery County Library Board and Friends of the Library, Connie Morella Chapter.
