Library Love

McALESTER —

Ellen Barlow hangs a banner in a display window at the old J.J. McAlester/Hunts Department Store building at 2nd Street and Choctaw Avenue in downtown McAlester. Building owner Ann Parrott has offered the window to McAlester Public Library for promotional displays and the first one celebrates February as “Love Your Library Month.” A Valentine Bear and large box of chocolates will be given away at 4:30 p.m. Friday, February 14 in a drawing at the library. To enter, visit the library and fill out a Valentine telling why you love your library. The building will also be the site of a free Sweetheart Dance Saturday, February 15, hosted by Parrot in honor of her husband Bill, who recently underwent open heart surgery. The dance from 7-11 p.m. will feature the Sunset Band.
