Valentine's Day is fast approaching, and to get you in the mood, we've pulled together some romantic materials available at Carnegie-Stout Public Library. If you're coming into the library, you can check out our display by the Recommendations Desk. You can also pick up one of ten different reading suggestion cards:
The cards were made with The Card Catalog Generator, and you can check out an inexpensive Valentine's craft idea using the card generator here: Card Catalog of Love Craft
Each summer, the Romance Writers of America hold an award ceremony called the RITAs to honor the best of that year's romance writing. You can take a look at past winners on their website here: RITA Awards. The library might not own all of the titles, but if you see something you'd love to read, you can fill out a Purchase Suggestion form!
