Candy with "I love libraries" on it

Each February, we celebrate not only Library Lovers Month at WPL but customer appreciation. We have over 60,000 active members at Waterloo Public Library and we want them to know they are appreciated.

As a thank you to our enthusiatic, supportive members, we have a few fun things planned in February.

Sweet Treats: when you visit the library, write on a paper heart why you love the library and enjoy a sweet treat on us.

Book Bag Giveaway: February 3 is "Take Your Child to the Library" Day. In honour of this, we'll be giving away WPL Book Bags at all locations (while supplies last) to children...and adults too. 

Cookie Day: did you know February 14th isn't just Valentine's Day, it's Library Lovers Day! To celebrate we will be handing out delicious heart-shaped sugar cookies from Norris Bakery at all locations (while supplies last).

Twitter Contest: follow us on Twitter @waterloolibrary We'll be holding pop-up contests throughout the month of February. You could win UpTown Dollars or WPL swag.

Also, as is the tradition at WPL in February, we are holding a special campaign to help others in our community. This year it's our 1st annual "Let's Get Personal" campaign in support of the Waterloo Wayside Centre. We're collecting donations of new, unopened personal hygiene products which will be distributed by the Wayside Centre in UpTown Waterloo. Collection bins will be available at all WPL locations from February 1 to 28. 

We thank you for your continued support of Waterloo Public Library and hope you enjoy Library Lovers Month & Customer Appreciation.
