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.
