Make a Valentine, Record a Love Poem

Spend a Sunday afternoon making something nice for someone special in your life. In addition to crafting lovely paper valentines, we will also show you how to make and send an audio recording of a love poem for someone - by email or by flash drive. Record your own poem or choose from a selection of poetry anthologies we’ll have available.  Anti-valentine content will also be available and encouraged. We will also host this program on Feb. 7 at Takoma Park Library.
