The Sylvan Lake Municipal Library welcomed the month of February with its well-attended XOX Valentine’s event on Feb. 2.
From 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., around 100 people came through the library doors to take in the night’s activities, said library head programmer Corrie Brown.
“The event is something we have now been doing at the library for nine years. It’s a great way to show people who may have never come to the library before all that the library has to offer,” she said.
The event was also a great evening for individuals in attendance to discover local vendors and get pampered, she added.
“It is important to be there for yourself as well and take care of yourself, so the event was just a nice way to do that.”
Vendors at the event included:Amie’s A Plus Spa
• Beautiful Lengths Glam ‘n Lash
• Berry Bean Chocolates
• Created With Love By Alison
• Ellen K. Massage Therapy
• J.A. Armitage, Fantasy Romance Author
• Kindred Spirit Candles
• Lorianne Raquelle Fine Art Portraiture
• Mary Kay
• Nova’s Wonder Emporium
• Petal and Blüm Creative
• Pure Romance
• Tarot Card readings with Jessica Skaley
• Trailer Trash Bath Co.
• Twisted Wire Art
The Library asked vendors to contribute an item to the silent auction to help support the programs at the Library.
“The silent auction was first incorporated into the event a few years ago and since then it has continued to be a really good fundraiser for the library,” Brown said.
In addition to browsing through the individual vendors, attendees also had a chance to check out a unique selection of books.
“We put a lot of our spicy books on display during the night for people to check out,” she said.
