DeSoto Libraries Offer February Entertainment

DeSoto Libraries Offer February Entertainment

Whether the weather is sunny and warm or dreary and cold, your favorite branch of the DeSoto Parish Library is ready to help you select books or attend activities regarding things that you love to do or want to learn about.

During February we celebrate Black History Month, Ground Hog’s Day, St. Valentine’s Day, Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday, Mardi Gras, Ash Wednesday, George Washington’s Birthday, and the Chinese New Year. Get one of the library staff to help you select books, audiobooks, or DVDs about any of these subjects to expand your knowledge or help you to develop a new or better respect about the occasion.

Another February occurrence you might want to learn more about is Leap Year. The second month of the year is also the shortest on the Julian calendar, which was introduced to us by Julius Caesar on January 1, 45 BC. February is also the month where we add a day every 4 years and call it Leap Year. The next Leap Year will be in 2024.
