Happy Valentine’s Day!

Some of us celebrate and some of us don’t, but it’s always good, in the middle of this chilly, rainy winter, to get some chocolate, roses, and popcorn and watch a feel-good movie. Here are some my colleagues have put on display for the holiday.


Shakespeare in Love_

Who inspired young Will Shakespeare to write some of his greatest romances, including Twelfth Night? A beautifully cast and acted historical romance.

Love, Simon_

Love, Simon is also based on literature– in this case, the hit YA novel, Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda. Simon’s a typical teenage boy trying to negotiate high school friendships. He’s also gay. This is a warm romantic comedy with a twist.

Valentine's day

Valentine’s Day shows us how a group of Los Angeles residents celebrate the day–or how they fail to celebrate it!


Finally, a touching and inspirational real-life love story. Richard and Mildred Loving were a working-class couple from small-town Virginia. They loved each other deeply, married, and had three children. But interracial marriage was illegal in the state of Virginia. The couple had to go to court to defend their marriage.

These are just a few of the wonderful films my colleagues shared. Why not come into the library and check out our displays? You might find something to take home for the weekend!
