Valentine’s Day

orange-yellow roses

Valentine's Day is a day to celebrate love – not just romantic love, but all the care and affection we feel for others in our lives. Take the time on Valentine's Day to let others know that you care about them, and set aside some quality time to spend with them – or if you can't, send them a gift or card. We all need more love and caring in our world; don't be afraid to express it. You may also consider doing a good deed for a stranger or giving a donation to a favorite charity to commemorate the day.

San José Public Library has many Valentine's Day-themed craft events between now and February 14 for you to express your creativity! Click on the button just below to find all of them. These events are good opportunities to spend time with family, friends, and others you care about – or you can give the crafts as gifts to show your affection!
