(Anti)Valentine’s Day Inspiration: Molly Wetta Curates an SLJ Pinterest Board

small_Valentine PinterestIn search of a last-minute display idea for Valentine’s Day? Or perhaps your teens would run in the opposite direction at the sight of hearts and doilies. Blogger and collection development librarian at the Lawrence Public Library, KS, Molly Wetta has culled through a variety of programming projects for entertaining and even STEM-related ideas to commemorate February 14 at the library. Check out a mix of her Valentine’s Day–themed suggestions on SLJ’s (Anti)Valentine’s Day Pinterest board. The member manager at YALSA’s “The Hub,” Wetta has pinned her favorite selections of book displays, program ideas, and signage for the special day.

In addition to reviewing YA titles, Wetta blogs about YA book trends, feminism in teen literature, and how librarians can use social media to reach their students and patrons at “Wrapped Up in Books.”

Wetta will continue to pin her resource picks to the board. If your library is doing fun, innovating programming and displays to celebrate (or not) Valentine’s Day, please share in the comments section below.
