SANDWICH – To celebrate Valentine’s Day, the Sandwich Public Library, 821 S. Main St. in Sandwich, will host Date Night at the Library starting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 14.
During the free event, adults older than 16 can eat popcorn, drink non-alcoholic sparkling champage, take pictures in a Valentine’s Day-themed photo booth and watch a showing of the PG-13 movie “Date Night," starring Steve Carrell and Tina Fey.
Although the library hosts Throwback Thursday, a free showing of a classic movie each Thursday at 1 p.m., Barb Posinger, reference and reader services librarian, said the date night event will be the first of its kind.
“We wanted library patrons and the community to have a fun night out and not worry about paying anything,” Posinger said. “It will be a fun, free way for couples to celebrate their relationships.”
If the turnout for this event is high, Posinger said she plans to organize other holiday-related date night events, including St. Patrick's Day and Christmas.
Advanced registration is encouraged; call 815-786-8306.
