Libraries invite students to do Valentine boxes

Huntington City-Township Public Library invites students in grades 6-12 to visit either library location to create their own "Make It & Take It Valentine Box" anytime during regular library hours now through Feb. 28.

The library will provide the materials and directions to create and decorate the box, and candy to fill it; participants need only to bring their creativity, and are encouraged to include a Valentine poem inside, which can be chosen from several examples on display or composed on the spot, completely from scratch or by using the many silly or serious poetry prompts on hand.

Finished, decorated and filled boxes may be given as gifts to friends, family or loved ones. There is a one box limit.

There is no charge to participate in this event and no registration is required.  The Main Library is located at 255 W. Park Drive, Huntington; and the Markle Branch Library is located at 197 E. Morse St., Markle.

For more information, call the Main Library at 356-2900 or the Markle Branch Library at 758-3332.
