February is “Love your Library Month” at the Murrieta Public Library.
The Library invites the community to celebrate this occasion by bringing canned food to the Library during the whole month of February in exchange for fines owed. For each canned good brought in, $1 of fines will be waived up to a maximum of $10.
"Love your Library Month is celebrated during the month in public, school and private libraries nationwide. This is a great time for citizens to recognize the important role libraries play in the cultural and economic success of local communities and the nation as a whole," said Principal Librarian Elise Malkowski.
"Whether Murrietans come to the library for bestselling books, children’s storytimes, to access the Internet or to use the computers, Murrieta residents are encouraged to show how much they love their local public library as well as their community this month by participating in this celebration."
Donated food items will be given to the Murrieta United Methodist Church.
The Murrieta Public Library is located at 8 Town Square (Adams Avenue and Kalmia Street). For more information about Love your Library Month or about other ways to support your public library, call 951-304-BOOK (2665) or visit the Library’s Web page at Murrietalibrary.info.
