St Valentines Day Gift Packs

Posted Date: 1 May 2008

The 14th February 2008 saw Kildare Library and Arts Services celebrate St. Valentine’s Day by giving 2,000 K.L.A.S. Gift Packs to commuters in Leixlip.  The Gift Packs, which were presented in eye-catching pink and red canvas bags, contained the book A Lovely Love Story by Edward Monkton, and tickets to a romantic lunchtime concert performed by Astral String Quartet.  The packs also contained a do-it-yourself St. Valentine’s Day card, stickers with romantic quotes, some sweet surprises, and a membership card inviting commuters to become members of the library. 

The Gift Packs were handed out by the Library Cupids, who brightened up a misty morning for commuters at the two busy train stations in Leixlip.  Kildare Library and Arts Services provided a unique opportunity for Leixlip commuters to check out forthcoming library and arts events, and quiz staff about available services on the spot!  Leixlip Community Library opened in 2007 and is the flagship library of County Kildare. It provides a wide range of exciting initiatives to the local community including a WiFi enabled ‘Lend A Laptop’ facility and a fully fitted Recording Suite offering unique recording opportunities across different art forms. Further details on these and all other projects can be found at www.kildare.ie/library
