The Valentine spirit has been in the air at Warren County Memorial Library since Monday morning as people of all ages created heartfelt greeting cards for family and friends.

The first to arrive at the library’s card-making station were Weston Brauer and Cali Huggins of The Learning Garden in Norlina, along with daycare owner Cyndi Bowen.

Weston and Cali, both 3, found small Valentine cards, doilies, markers and glue, along with all colors of paper waiting for them. Construction paper was available in the traditional Valentine colors, red, pink and white, along with other selections, including green and blue for a more unique touch.

Both children chose pink paper. Weston wanted to make a card for his parents, while Cali planned to make a card for her mother.

Weston created an “epic” card, using hero-themed Valentines on his creation and adding designs with markers.

Cali’s card took a cat theme as she glued several kitten Valentines on her card. Markers and stickers were a finishing touch on her design.

As Cali described her card, both she and Weston talked about their pets. While Cali has a puppy, she loves cats. Weston’s family has a variety of animals, including cats Moose and Bo, puppies Maple and Wags, ducks and chickens.

The Valentine theme continued after Weston and Cali completed their cards, as they enjoyed a Valentine’s Day story.

Warren County Memorial Library’s Valentine creation station will be open through closing time on Valentine’s Day. The activity, for both children and adults, is free of charge to the public.

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, the library will offer two movies today: “Be My Valentine” from 2-4 p.m., and “A Charlie Brown Valentine” from 4-6 p.m. Both are rated G. Homemade treats will be served.

The library is at 119 S. Front St., Warrenton. For more information, call 252-257-4990.
