Library Lovers Month

MCPL provides a variety of STEM resources and offerings year round that help foster a love of science and exploration. Branches and FOL chapters will host special events and activities to celebrate all month long. Check out our calendar.

You can also tell us why you’re madly in love with your library. Just fill out a postcard while at your branch, download this sign or share a photo on FOLMC’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages (be sure to tag #ILoveMyLibrary and #MadLoveForLibraries).

Library Lovers Month is sponsored in partnership with the Montgomery County Library Board and Friends of the Library, Aspen Hill Chapter.

Round Up Your Change at Our Bookstores

When you shop at our bookstores in February, round up your purchase to the nearest dollar, and donate the change to FOLMC. Proceeds benefit Montgomery County Public Libraries. Last year we raised $1200. Help us top that goal.

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, FOL chapters and branches host Library Lovers Month themed programs and activities. 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.
