Library Lovers’ Day at the SMSA Library

Library Lovers’ Day at the SMSA Library
February 8, 2023

SMSA has been loving and sharing our books for 190 years! Now that’s a lot of love!

Visit the SMSA Library on Level 2 next Tuesday 14th February for Library Lovers’ Day.

You’ll be able to:

  • Go on a blind date with a book
  • Pick up a Library Lovers’ Day bookmark
  • Guess how many chocolates are in the chocolate jar
  • Get a chocolate or two…

We look forward to seeing you in the library for Library Lovers’ Day!
