February 14th is renowned for being the day for lovers: Valentine's Day.
Florists take enough money to keep the business afloat for the next six months, more chocolate and champagne is consumed than at Christmas, and you need to reserve a table at your favourite restaurant two weeks in advance if you don't want to be resorting to take away fish and chips.
Valentine's Day is not on my radar. You see, February 14th is also Library Lovers' Day, an annual event organised by the Australian Library and Information Association. This year's theme is "Library Love Stories". The theme highlights all the love that can be found in the library and the ways your library can celebrate.
Libraries across Australia will be marking this event in many different ways, from presentations from local authors to displays of romance novels.
Do you know my favourite event that I've heard about to celebrate Library Lovers' Day? Bribie Island Library, north of Brisbane and hugging the coast south of Caloundra on the southern tail of the Sunshine Coast, is presenting Date Night at The Library.
Commencing at 5:30 pm, you can catch the classic romantic comedy, His Girl Friday, starring Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell. Originally released in 194, and directed by Howard Hawks. "When hard-charging New York newspaper editor Walter Burns (Cary Grant) discovers that his ex-wife, investigative reporter Hildy Johnson (Rosalind Russell), has gotten engaged to milquetoast insurance agent Bruce Baldwin (Ralph Bellamy), he unsuccessfully tries to lure her away from tame domestic life with a story about the impending execution of convicted murderer Earl Williams. But when Hildy discovers Williams may be innocent, her reporter instincts take over."
This is a FREE Event though bookings are essential. Go here.
Bribie Island Library is located at 1 Welsby Parade, Bongaree. The movie finishes at 7.30pm, and the library will remain open till 8.00pm, allowing you to find the book of your dreams.
