Many people give cards, candy and flowers to the ones they love on Valentine’s Day. At Douglas County Libraries (DCL), love is in the air all month long with programs to indulge your love of books, movies, people, pets, wine and more! Here are just some of the lovely things happening at DCL in February.
Ditch the DVDs and stem the streaming. Instead, relax with an afternoon movie at the library, and then stay for an engaging conversation about the film. Our Friday screenings feature discussions with local film expert Matt Wigdahl; Librarian Anne Ledford will facilitate the discussion of our Sunday screening. Movie snacks are provided! Registration is required.
