February is Love Your Library Month

February is all about love. It’s about Valentine’s Day, where millions of people show and reveal their love and affection to their significant others or crushes. It’s also National Library Lover’s Month at the Murrieta Public Library. During the month of February, the Library invites the community to love your library, reduce your fines, and donate to your community! Come celebrate this occasion by bringing in non-perishable, nutritious, pre-packaged food items to the Library in exchange for fines owed. For each item brought in, $1.00 of fines will be waived, up to a maximum of $15.00.

Love Your Library Month is celebrated throughout February 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 like ours and the nation as a whole. Whether Murrietans come to the library for bestselling books, movies or video games, children’s storytimes, to access the Internet or to borrow something fun from our new musical instrument collection, Murrieta residents are encouraged to show how much they love their library as well as their community by participating in this celebration.  Food donations are welcome even if no fines are owed as all items collected will be given to the Murrieta United Methodist Church to help families struggling to make ends meet.

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 website at
