February 14 is celebrated as Valentine's Day, dedicated to romantic love between two people. Valentine's Day is commemorated by exchanging messages of romantic love and gifts of candy, flowers and donations to charity.

Named after two early martyrs of the Christian faith, it wasn't until the Middle Ages that the tradition of courtly love and Saint Valentine became associated by Geoffrey Chaucer in his poem 'Parlement of Foules' in 1382, to honor the engagement of Richard II and Anne of Bohemia.

George Washington
b. 2-22-1732

George Washington was the first president of the United States. He is commemorated with the Washington Monument in Washington, DC.

The cherry tree is also associated with a story about Washington's innate honesty: as a child George had practiced with his new hatchet on a valuable cherry tree - when questioned if he had cut the tree down, he didn't lie, and took the punishment. Thus February was chosen a National Cherry Month.

The cherry trees in the print were a gift from Japan.

February is Library Lovers Month -

Library, from the French librairie; Latin liber = book, is an organized collection of resources made accessible to a defined community, such as a public body, institution, corporation, or private person, for reference or borrowing.

The first libraries have been identified as archives of clay tablets inscribed with cuneiform script, discovered in Sumer, some dating from 2600 B.C. Personal libraries appeared in Greece in the 5th century BC. The greatest libraries of the Mediterranean world were in Constantinopel and Alexandira.

• “To furnish the means of acquiring knowledge is the greatest benefit that can be conferred upon mankind. It prolongs life itself and enlarges the sphere of existence.” ~ John Quincy Adams
• “The universe (which others call the Library) is composed of an indefinite and perhaps infinite number of hexagonal galleries, with vast air shafts between, surrounded by very low railings.” ~ The Library of Babel, Jorge Luis Borges
• “I have always imagined Paradise as a kind of library.” ~ Jorge Luis Borges
• “If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.” ~ Cicero
• “The richest person in the world – in fact all the riches in the world – couldn't provide you with anything like the endless, incredible loot available at your local library.” ~ Malcolm Forbes
• “The challenge now is for public libraries – particularly in low-income communities – to stay connected. Libraries need support to maintain quality technology services so they can effectively serve the millions who count on them for their only access to computers and the internet.” ~ Bill Gates
• “Every library is an arsenal.” ~ Robert Green Ingersoll
• “If this nation is to be wise as well as strong, if we are to achieve our destiny, then we need more new ideas for more wise men reading more good books in more public libraries. These libraries should be open to all — except the censor. We must know all the facts and hear all the alternatives and listen to all the criticisms. Let us welcome controversial books and controversial authors. For the Bill of Rights is the guardian of our security as well as our liberty. ” ~ John F. Kennedy
• “What is more important in a library than anything else – than everything else – is the fact that it exists. ” ~ Archibald MacLeish
• “The library connects us with the insight and knowledge, painfully extracted from Nature, of the greatest minds that ever were, with the best teachers, drawn from the entire planet and all our history, to instruct us without tiring, and to inspire us to make our own contribution to the collective knowledge of the human species. I think the health of our civilization, the depth of our awareness about the underpinnings of our culture and our concern for the future can all be tested by how well we support our libraries.” ~ Carl Sagan
• “Librarians have always been among the most thoughtful and helpful people. They are teachers without a classroom. No libraries, no progress.” ~ Willard Scott
• “While on the subject of burning books, I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and destroyed records rather than have to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles. / So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House, the Supreme Court, the Senate, the House of Representatives, or the media. The America I loved still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.” ~ Kurt Vonnegut
